FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
March 22, 2022
YORK, PA – March 22, 2022 – Family First Health, in partnership with WellSpan Health and the York City Bureau of Health, is closing the York City Collaborative Vaccine Clinic. Since March 23, 2021, staff and volunteers from each organization have provided more than 7,500 COVID-19 vaccines to the community at the vaccine clinic, which operates out of the first floor of the Family First Health York City location at 116 S. George Street in York. The final date of operation for the vaccine clinic is Tuesday, March 29, 2022.
“The York City Collaborative Vaccine Clinic was successful because the partners agreed and delivered on the vision of equitable access to COVID-19 vaccines for all residents, thereby impacting the spread of COVID-19 in our community. The clinic offered steady and reliable walk-in or scheduled access to York residents, to all three vaccines – including for the pediatric population – and with Spanish-speaking team members supporting each session,” says Jenny Englerth, CEO and President of Family First Health.
The vaccine clinic will remain open Tuesdays in March from 1:00 – 6:50 p.m. with the final date being March 29. Appointments are available for Moderna and Pfizer 2nd, 3rd, and booster doses (ages 5+) by calling (855) 851-3641. After March 29, residents should contact their medical providers or local pharmacies to explore available vaccine options. Vaccine availability may also be found at www.familyfirsthealth.org and www.wellspan.org.
Other than the closing of the Collaborative Vaccine Clinic, there is no change to the operations at the Family First Health George Street Center. Visit https://www.familyfirsthealth.org/locations/george-street to view the hours of operation for medical and dental services.
