Order Directs Vaccine Providers in Pennsylvania to Work with AAAs

Pennsylvania Acting Secretary of Health Alison Beam this week signed an amended order indicating that certain vaccine providers must work with local Area Agencies on Aging and Medical Assistance managed care organizations to specifically schedule adults eligible in Phase 1A of the state’s vaccination plan. The order also requires these providers to have the ability to schedule appointments for individuals into the future. Under this order, a vaccine provider that informs a Phase 1A individual that no appointments are available may be subject to enforcement. The order also requires providers to continue to ensure that appointments can be scheduled both by phone and using online scheduling systems. Click here to learn more.
