HAZLETON, Pa. — Penn State Hazleton will host an on-campus Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccination clinic for students, employees, community members and children ages 12 and older from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Wednesday, May 19.

The clinic, offered in partnership with Providence Place Senior Living and Care Options Rx, will be held in the gymnasium of the Physical Education Building.

During the appointment, all participants will automatically be scheduled for their second dose of the vaccine on Wednesday, June 9, at the same time and location. 

For children ages 12-15, a parent or guardian must be present during the appointment. The child’s up-to-date vaccination record must be provided. Parents or guardians may also register someone ages 16-17 but must accompany the child to the clinic. 

Participants are required to bring valid government-issued identification so organizers can match it with the appointment confirmation.

Health insurance is not required and there is no charge for the vaccine. However, participants are encouraged to bring their health insurance identification card if available. 

Walk-ins will not be accepted.

Penn State is strongly encouraging students, faculty and staff to sign up for the first vaccine available to them. Find the latest COVID-19 vaccination information for the Penn State community on the University’s coronavirus information website.
