>>Next Phase Of COVID Vaccinations Could Start Soon
(Harrisburg, PA) -- State health officials say the next phase of the COVID-19 vaccine distribution plan could start sooner than expected. Some health systems like Lehigh Valley Health Network and St. Luke's University Health Network have reported vaccinating all of their interested, eligible employees and will start administering them to those in Phase 1-B. Secretary Dr. Rachel Levine says she doesn't want to put a vaccine back on the shelf or waste any doses, so any providers that don't have someone from Phase 1-A, but have someone from 1-B, should vaccinate them. This means that first responders and essential workers may start receiving their first doses of the vaccine.
