The Vaccinate Lancaster Coalition, led by Penn Medicine Lancaster General Health and Lancaster County Government, opened a public COVID-19 vaccination center March 10 at the site of the former Bon-Ton department store at Park City Center.
The coalition includes community partners and all four major health systems serving Lancaster County — LG Health, Penn State Health, UPMC and WellSpan Health. Rock Lititz was hired to prepare the space and handle logistics.
The center is operating seven days a week through June 30, with vaccinations given between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m., pending adequate supply. As a pilot, a limited number of shots were administered when the center opened.
The number of people vaccinated has since increased and is expected to give upwards of 6,000 per day, depending on the number of vaccines received from the Pennsylvania Department of Health (DOH). Vaccine allocations are determined and shipped by the state DOH.
Coalition leaders estimate 432,000 Lancaster County residents ages 16 and older are eligible for the vaccine. For updates visit VaccinateLancaster.org.
