A website designed as a one-stop shop for residents seeking COVID-19 vaccine information in York County launched this week.
The website, vaccinateyorkpa.org, provides information on who is eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine, where it is available and links to local vaccine providers. The site also contains information on vaccine progress and COVID-19 statistics in York County.
The site is a collaboration among the York County Commissioners, York County Planning Commission, York County Office of Emergency Management and local health care providers WellSpan Health, UPMC and Family First Health.
The county used money from its CARES Act allocation to pay for costs associated with establishing this website.
“We thank York County residents for their patience throughout this often frustrating process,” said York County President Commissioner Julie Wheeler. “We’re hopeful that as more vaccine becomes available in the next few weeks from the federal and state governments, we can significantly increase the number of people getting vaccinated in York County. This site will increase visibility on how York County is progressing with our vaccinations.”
On the site, data is provided by the state Department of Health depicting the impact COVID-19 has had on the community. This will include tracking vaccine progress and other COVID-19 statistics. Additionally, links for resources such as 2-1-1 for housing assistance, food access as well as acquiring transportation assistance to get a vaccine are on the site.
The website will have more information on the COVID-19 community vaccination site once it is operating at the old A.C. Moore building at Manchester Crossroads on Route 30.
