Covid Calls

Vaccine Scheduling Update: We’re experiencing very high call volumes from people interested in getting the COVID-19 vaccine. Currently, our vaccine supply is very small, and we are unable to accept phone calls to schedule vaccine appointments. Please check back here for updates.

Our health advisory council is comprised of Penn faculty, staff, and community leaders who assist in determining future areas of growth and expansion, help support efforts necessary to meet the program's goals, and make recommendations on how to advance LGBTQ health at Penn and in the Philadelphia region.
