Montgomery County has opened a public COVID-19 vaccination clinic in the gym at Montgomery County Community College in Blue Bell. The clinic is currently vaccinating only people in the professions that fall under Phase 1A of the county’s vaccination plan.
As of January 7th, 8,833 people have received the first of two doses of the vaccine in Montgomery County. According to a report from WHYY, the county estimates 20,000 people fall within the Phase 1A category.
“We ask that everyone have patience as we start this initial roll-out. The vaccine is in limited supply and vaccination efforts will focus on those at highest risk for contracting COVID-19 such as hospital workers, doctors, dentists, and medical first responders,” said Dr. Valerie A. Arkoosh, Chair of the Montgomery County Board of Commissioners. “We thank our healthcare partners and Montgomery County Community College for stepping up to support our first vaccination site.”
If you currently qualify to receive the vaccine, you can complete a screening survey to request a vaccine appointment. Appointment slots are limited and are available by reservation only. There is no walk-up registration. An appointment confirmation and a medical license, badge, or paystub verifying employment will be required to receive a vaccination.
