ven as COVID-19 cases in our community
continue to decline, increasing the number
of people who are vaccinated remains critical
to reaching a final end to the pandemic and its
devastating effects.
Penn Medicine Lancaster General Health served as
the lead healthcare partner at the Lancaster County
Community Vaccination Center, which offered
convenient access to the vaccine for all eligible
members of the community. In fact, LG Health
Chief Clinical Officer Michael Ripchinski, MD,
said the center gave nearly 240,000 vaccinations
before completing its mission at the end of June.
" However, despite those successful efforts, a
significant number of local residents - including
communities of color, non-English speaking individuals
and the elderly - continue to face barriers
to getting vaccinated, " Ripchinski said. " Those
barriers can range from transportation or language
to limited availability of accurate information about
the vaccine's safety. "

Pop-Up Vaccine Clinics
Remove Barriers to
Getting Vaccinated
WORKING WITH COMMUNITY PARTNERS, THE HEALTH SYSTEM
IS BRINGING VACCINES CLOSER TO HOME IN
NEIGHBORHOODS ACROSS LANCASTER COUNTY
To counter those factors that may deter diverse
communities from getting vaccinated, LG Health
is partnering with community organizations to
prioritize vaccine access. Those efforts have included
establishing more than three dozen temporary " popup "
vaccination clinics at convenient locations across
Lancaster County.
Alice Yoder, LG Health Executive Director, Community
Health, said an advantage to these smaller,
neighborhood sites is the presence of familiar, trusted
members of the community who are encouraging
vaccination. The pop-up clinics offer the vaccine at
no cost, with walk-in access and no appointments
necessary. LG Health also offers vaccine access to
people who are homebound.
