Vaccine Order in Pennsylvania Signed Feb. 12

Last week, Acting Pennsylvania Secretary of Health Beam signed an order outlining appropriate steps and recognized best practices to ensure vaccine providers deliver 80 percent of doses within seven days of receipt, provide a phone number where people can speak to an individual to make an appointment, and report race and ethnicity data for everyone vaccinated. If you have questions about the state’s vaccine distribution or new order, contact Eric Kiehl, PACHC Director of Policy and Partnerships. PACHC has already submitted a series of questions to DOH on the order and Sec. Beam has committed to providing a written response.
