Gov. Wolf Discusses Vaccine Equity and Progress on Visit to McKeesport Vaccination Clinic

As Pennsylvania's vaccination plan accelerates and more than a third of the state's eligible population is vaccinated, Governor Tom Wolf visited a new vaccination clinic in McKeesport to talk about vaccine equity and progress.

"Since Pennsylvania providers began receiving vaccine in late December, our state has made immense progress," Gov. Wolf said. "Pennsylvania has moved up in state rankings for vaccine distribution over the past several weeks, and we now regularly rank in the top 15 of states for first-dose vaccinations."

The clinic in McKeesport at the Bethlehem Baptist Church, focused on serving a population that may have barriers to vaccine access, is essentially a neighborhood clinic with plans to vaccinate between 100 and 200 people each day.

It is the fourth clinic to be opened by Allegheny County in conjunction with its health department and a local community - two larger clinics and now two community clinics.
