Initial phase of COVID-19 vaccinations in Pike County
PIKE COUNTY — Distribution of COVID-19 vaccinations is happening in Pike County per the PA Department of Health’s phased approach, following Center for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines.
Pike County is in the initial phase of distribution, known as Phase 1A, which focuses on vaccinating healthcare personnel, Emergency Medical Services (EMS) first responders, and residents of long-term care facilities.
Statewide, with Phase 1A encompassing approximately 1 million people, demand initially exceeded supply. “Locally, however, we are caught up on Phase 1A vaccinations,” said Pike County Emergency Management Director Tim Knapp.
Pike County residents who meet 1A requirements can request a vaccination by contacting Knapp at firstname.lastname@example.org or 570-296-1911.
More information will be forthcoming as Pennsylvania advances to Phase 1B and Phase 2 of vaccine distribution to broader segments of the population.
