Gov. Tom Wolf continues urging Pennsylvanians to get vaccinated against COVID-19.
He was in York Monday at an upcoming COVID-19 vaccine site to encourage eligible Pennsylvanians who are not yet vaccinated to take advantage of their local community vaccine clinics.
While just under 70% of adults are fully vaccinated, the state is still averaging more than 4,600 cases and 40 deaths per day.
The state Health Department says 97% of COVID-19-related deaths and 95% of reported hospitalizations due to COVID-19 were in unvaccinated or not fully vaccinated people.
“Getting vaccinated is our way out of the pandemic,” Gov. Wolf said. “My administration will continue to work with trusted community partners to make vaccines easily accessible for the people who need them.”
Grocery shops have become the latest addition in making the COVID-19 vaccine more accessible.
“For people with irregular or unpredictable work hours, limited mobility, language barriers, and other challenges, hosting vaccine clinics where and when people shop for groceries is an excellent opportunity for vulnerable populations to get vaccinated,” Wolf said.
