It’s the biggest question in Philadelphia: When can I get the COVID-19 vaccine?
Residents can now sign up online to reserve their place in line for the vaccine.
Philadelphia is currently receiving an extremely limited supply of vaccine. The City is making the vaccine available in phases based on a person’s level of risk of:
- Acquiring infection.
- Transmitting infection to vulnerable persons.
- Suffering severe consequences of infection.
Because of this phased schedule, Philadelphia residents will become eligible to receive the vaccine at different times. Residents who complete the City’s vaccine interest form will ensure they will be contacted directly when they become eligible.
In the meantime, residents are encouraged to wear masks, stay socially distanced, and refrain from gathering with people outside of household. Until many more people in Philadelphia get vaccinated, this is still the best way to stop the pandemic.
