On April 15, 2021, the Pennsylvania Department of Health notified all COVID-19 vaccine providers that the pause in administering doses of the Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) vaccine will be extended until April 24 or until updated guidance is provided from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

On December 30, 2020, the Pennsylvania Department of Health issued an order to ensure that community health providers are being vaccinated during Phase 1A. The Department is working to vaccinate healthcare workers and long-term care facilities through the Federal Pharmacy Partnership. There are close to 1 million individuals to be vaccinated during Phase 1A.

A fact sheet about this order is available, as well as a fact sheet on what the order means for enrolled COVID-19 vaccine providers.

COVID-19 Vaccination Program Provider Agreement

The Pennsylvania Department of Health welcomes existing partners who may already be a part of Pennsylvania's Immunizations Program (e.g., Vaccines for Children, TotTrax) as well as new partners to enroll as providers in Pennsylvania's COVID-19 Vaccination Program.  

Please note that our plan for vaccine distribution includes a phased approach, therefore we may need to prioritize enrollment to align with the phases. For example, in Phase 1A we may need to prioritize enrollments for providers best positioned to reach those in Phase 1A populations. 

In all cases, to receive and administer COVID-19 vaccine, providers must be credentialed/licensed in Pennsylvania; sign and agree to the conditions in the CDC COVID-19 Vaccination Program Provider Agreement; and also fully complete the CDC COVID-19 Vaccination Provider Profile form for each location where COVID-19 vaccine will be administered.  

Please note that federal clinicians working in federal facilities may have professional licensure from a different jurisdiction and that some national pharmacy chains and federal entities will be instructed to enroll directly with CDC.

If you choose to enroll as a COVID-19 vaccine provider, please complete the COVID-19 Vaccination Program Provider Agreement (see below).  Upon submission, you will receive a notice of receipt.  If additional information is necessary, someone will reach out to you directly, otherwise consider your enrollment agreement to be in process.  

There are a number of steps to the enrollment process, including the requirement for providers to be established and trained in the use of the Pennsylvania Statewide Immunization Information System (PA-SIIS) specifically for the COVID-19 Vaccination Program.  When it is time for those steps to be completed, you will receive a second notice with more information.  Please do not submit duplicate agreements as this will delay the processing of your enrollment.  While your enrollment agreement is being processed, we encourage you to review the resources which can be found at the links provided to the right.

*** All providers choosing to enroll as a COVID-19 vaccine provider must complete the electronic agreement form. Below are PDF versions of the agreement form to be used as a reference when completing the electronic version. You do not need to complete the PDF versions of the agreement form to enroll as a COVID-19 vaccine provider.

Pennsylvania Vaccine Provider Map

The Pennsylvania Department of Health is working to ensure all enrolled vaccine providers have information publicly available for those currently eligible to be vaccinated. This map will be updated weekly on Monday afternoon. Click on a marker to see details on vaccination locations. All locations listed on the map are enrolled providers. The dark blue circles represent locations which received vaccine from the Pennsylvania Department of Health and the light blue diamonds are locations which received vaccine directly from the federal government. It is important to note that the supply of vaccine compared to the demand is very limited. Please note that an allocation of vaccine does not guarantee that appointments are still available. Contact the provider directly to schedule an appointment if you are eligible in Phase 1A. This map is intended for people seeking their first dose of vaccine. If you already received your first dose of Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, you should return to the same provider for your second dose regardless of whether they appear on this map.

*Note – Philadelphia County is a separate vaccine jurisdiction and has their own information about vaccine distribution

COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution

  • The spreadsheet below is intended to provide a public overview of COVID-19 vaccine deliveries to providers.
  • Vaccine providers receive separate, detailed communications from the Department of Health (DOH) to distinguish the number of doses to be used for first and second vaccinations.
  • The spreadsheet shows providers who have received a delivery of vaccine, the total doses delivered, and the date of delivery.
  • The spreadsheet does not distinguish doses delivered as first or second doses. The department is working to enhance the ability to show this level of data in the future.
  • The department continues to fill provider orders and requests for vaccine throughout the week, therefore spreadsheets posted prior to Friday may not represent all locations that will receive vaccine in a week.
  • Spreadsheets are updated and posted on Wednesdays and Fridays to reflect the locations listed having received vaccine. For example, if a location is to receive vaccine on Thursday, it will not be listed in the Wednesday spreadsheet, but will be listed in the Friday spreadsheet
  • The COVID-19 Vaccine Provider Locations spreadsheet does not include Retail Pharmacy Partners or Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) receiving a separate allocation of vaccine directly from the federal government. Those partners, and the locations receiving vaccine, are included in spreadsheets below.

* Note: During week 10 there were nationwide winter weather emergencies that resulted in shipments of vaccine across the country not reaching providers. Vaccine is shipped directly from the manufacturers to providers. The DOH has no control over the actual shipment times and deliveries to providers. The CDC and DOH both notified providers of delayed shipments during week 10. The delayed shipments are expected to be delivered to providers this week. It is the providers' responsibility to reschedule vaccination appointments as necessary due to delayed shipments outside of the DOH's control. Weather related delivery delays may skew the vaccine information in spreadsheets for week 10 and week 11
