YORK, Pa. —
Gov. Tom Wolf is praising a community health center in York for its commitment to vaccinating underserved groups.
Wolf visited Family First Health on South George Street on Thursday to thank staff and tour the COVID-19 vaccination area.
The governor said federally qualified health centers, including Family First Health, have played a big part in ensuring that vaccines get to the vulnerable populations who need them through direct outreach to patients.
“I really appreciate coming to places like this because we can all learn a lot from the good things that are happening here,” Wolf said.
The health center is gearing up for a boost in its vaccination efforts. Starting this week, it will offer all-day Friday vaccination clinics.
“We’re always looking for ways to do a better job,” Wolf said.
Family First Health has vaccinated about 1,000 people since late December. With the Friday clinics, the goal is to vaccinate 3,000 people between now and the end of April.
