Penn Medicine Lancaster General Health is guided by PA DOH’s goals to prioritize the vaccine to maximize benefits and minimize harms caused by the virus, promote justice, mitigate health inequities, and promote transparency. To that end, our process will be aligned to the PA DOH’s guidance for Vaccine Providers and for Healthcare Personnel Not Affiliated with a Hospital.
Penn Medicine Lancaster General Health receives vaccine supply as an allocation directly from the PA DOH based upon their discretion. Vaccine availability is limited by the amount of vaccine provided by the state.
Here are the steps to be vaccinated through Penn Medicine Lancaster General Health:
- Employers of healthcare personnel should identify staff who are interested in receiving the vaccination.
- Click here to enter the required information for designated staff. This link can also be shared with staff for self-entry.
Following receipt and verification of the data requests, we will place a vaccine order for each staff member, and then they will receive a notification to schedule their vaccination appointment via MyLGHealth. We will do this in batches based on vaccine and appointment availability. Advise your staff to sign up at MyLGHealth.org as it’s a requirement to schedule. Staff will sign a consent to treat in advance within MyLGHealth or upon arriving for vaccination.
Since we are reliant on an accurate schedule to prepare and not waste any vaccine, please do not show up before your scheduled day and time, and please cancel in advance if you cannot make your appointment.
Upon arrival to your appointment, healthcare personnel not affiliated with Penn Medicine Lancaster General Health must provide proof of occupation to receive a vaccine. This could include a state license or certification, letter from the employer on organization letterhead, facility identification/security badge, group listing on employer letterhead, or other proof of occupation.
