UPMC Partners with Wilkinsburg Organizations to Host COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic

By: Andrea Kunicky

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.
