Wilkinsburg Community Vaccination Clinic

Last weekend, UPMC, in partnership with the Wilkinsburg Sanctuary Project for Peace, Wilkinsburg ministers, the Community Vaccine Collaborative and Hosanna House, immunized 1,000 community members against COVID-19.

Getting doses to communities that have experienced a disproportionate impact of the COVID-19 pandemic must be a priority as vaccine supply increases. Despite reports of vaccine hesitancy, many organizations have been overwhelmed with calls from community members who want the vaccine.

The public can register to receive a COVID-19 vaccine at Vaccine.UPMC.com.
