Allegheny County Health Department receives additional COVID-19 vaccine doses

The Allegheny County Health Department received additional supplies of the COVID-19 vaccine on Monday.

The doses will be used for its clinics this week, however the county says it will still need to adjust schedules for second doses.

The department received 7,000 doses of the Moderna vaccine and says 4,700 of those are for first doses with the remaining 2,300 intended for second doses.

Individuals who received a first dose at the Monroeville clinic between January 27-30 and are due for their second dose between February 24-27 will be contacted via email with registration information and will be vaccinated Wednesday through Saturday.

Anyone falling into that category above but did not receive an email from the county health department should call 2-1-1 to register for the appointment.

At the Castle Shannon clinic, there will be a limited amount of first doses available, but only for those who are 65 years old or older. Appointments are required and can be made online through the county website or by calling 2-1-1.
