As demand for the COVID-19 vaccine has declined, WellSpan Health is beginning the process of closing its Adams County Community COVID-19 Vaccination site.
The site, located at the Department of Emergency Services near Gettysburg, has begun phasing out vaccine appointments, with the last second dose appointment scheduled for July 1. At that point, all patients will receive their vaccines at WellSpan Gettysburg Hospital.
The long-term plan for COVID-19 vaccination appointments will be to eventually transition to WellSpan Medical Group practices.
WellSpan Health opened the joint partnership Community COVID-19 Vaccination Site in Gettysburg in March, as a way to expand access to COVID-19 vaccines across South Central Pennsylvania. Since opening, The Community COVID-19 Vaccination site has administered just under 16,000 doses of the vaccine.
Individuals who are still looking to make an appointment, can do so online or via phone:
- Online at www.MyWellSpan.org
- Online at www.wellspan.org/covid19/covid-19vaccine/
- Call the COVID-19 hotline 1-855-851-3641
WellSpan’s vaccination effort also extends deep into our communities, with mobile vaccination teams focused on bringing it to at-risk neighborhoods, homebound patients, and other groups that may experience vaccine hesitancy.
