HARRISBURG – Gov. Tom Wolf announced that over 600 skilled nursing facilities have received first and second doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, and in total more than 315,000 doses of vaccine were administered among all long-term care facilities being vaccinated by CVS and Walgreens. Wolf called it an important milestone for the state, and it marks key progress in ensuring that our most vulnerable residents have access to a vaccine. The vaccination milestone is part of the Federal Pharmacy Partnership program in which CVS and Walgreens are Pennsylvania’s partners. This week, Pennsylvania has been allocated 225,890 first doses of vaccine – the highest single-week allotment of first doses Pennsylvania has received so far. It is an increase of more than 42,000 doses. Pennsylvania was allocated 180,610 second doses of vaccine which is an increase of nearly 40,000 second doses.
