COVID-19 Vaccine

As information is changing quickly, we will continue to update this page to assist in keeping the public and healthcare providers informed of COVID-19 vaccine updates. 

Frequently Asked Questions

The Montgomery County Office of Public Health is required to follow the Pennsylvania Department of Health's plan for vaccine prioritization for distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine. The goal is for everyone to be able to easily get a COVID-19 vaccine as soon as large quantities are available. At this time, vaccine supply remains extremely limited.

The City of Philadelphia receives their vaccine from the Federal Government directly and is not required to follow the Pennsylvania Department of Health's vaccine prioritization plans.
