In order to make COVID-19 vaccine easily accessible to all Philadelphians, the Health Department has partnered with a variety of vaccine providers to set up clinics and give out vaccine. In addition to these partner clinics, the City is running mass vaccine clinics that can vaccinate up to 500 people per day in neighborhoods throughout Philadelphia.
Who is eligible to come to a City-run mass vaccine clinic?
Starting on April 16, everyone how lives or works in Philadelphia who meets the age requirements is eligible to get the vaccine.
What do you need to go to a City-run mass vaccine clinic?
Appointments at the City-run mass vaccine clinics can be set for everyone 12 and older by visiting www.phila.gov/vaccine.
If residents do not have internet access, have issues filling out the online form, or need the form in an additional language, they should call 3-1-1.
Many clinics are also accepting walk-ups.
What should you bring to a City-run mass vaccine clinic?
It is encouraged that people bring a form of identification for record-keeping purposes, but it is not required. If you need assistance, or help translating, you can bring one person with you to help. Please dress for the weather, as you may have to stand outside.
What about walk-ups? Are they allowed at City-run mass vaccine clinics?
Sometimes, a clinic might have more vaccine than people who have appointments. When this happens, the Health Department works with community organizations and local groups to allow some people to walk-up to the clinic without appointments. These opportunities may be limited. It is possible that a clinic will not have any available walk-up spots.
How do I get to the City-run mass vaccine clinics?
There are many transportation options available to meet the needs of residents traveling to all City-run and FEMA-supported clinics. More information about the range of options can be found on the City’s vaccine clinic transportation blog.
