York, PA — Starting tomorrow, a new vaccine clinic will throw open its doors in York, targeting the underserved community.
“It’s one of the puzzle pieces. This is not a mass vaccination site but serves a very specific precision purpose,” said Jenny Englerth, President and CEO of Family First Health.
Because the number of people from these communities getting immunized is staggeringly low, Family First Health is kicking off March Madness. The goal is to turn the three-story York location into a vaccine clinic, serving 200 to 300 people, every Friday, that might have shied away from getting the medicine from an unfamiliar place.
“Family First is a great example of how federally qualified health centers and local providers can serve vulnerable populations,” said Governor Tom Wolf.
