COVID-19

MHEDS is reopening it’s COVID-19 vaccine registration link with limited responses accepted for appointments on Saturday, June 19, 2021. Because our vaccine staffing and number of available slots varies each week, a new link will be posted each week. If you sign up for an appointment time, please call 814-860-6313 as quickly as possible if you need to cancel or change times, so that we can find someone to fill your slot. If you sign up as a “Wait list” please be prepared to come in within 15 minutes if called on Saturday. We sometimes have no-shows or extra doses and we cannot waste even 1 dose! If you are on the wait list and do not get called, we will call to make an appointment for you during the next vaccine clinic. Thank you.

COVID-19 Vaccine Appointment Request


MHEDS has been approved as a provider for the COVID-19 vaccine. As a service to our community we are offering the Moderna vaccine to all individuals 18 years and older Pennsylvania’s COVID-19 Interim Vaccination Plan V.5 (pa.gov).

IF you receive the vaccine from another provider but are signed up with MHEDS to receive it, please let us know so we can put another person in your place (covidvaccine@mheds.org).

Notes:

  • MHEDS will open a new link each Monday for the following weekend’s appointments. You are able to select an appointment time, but ask that you please only fill out the form once.
  • Once appointment times are full, there will be waitlist slots to fill. If you add your name to the wait list, please be ready to come to MHEDS on short notice the day of the vaccination clinic. We often have a cancellation or extra dose that we need to use at the end of the day and ask that you try to arrive within 15-20 minutes of being called.
  • Moderna vaccine is administered in two doses, 28 days apart. We will schedule your second dose before you leave the clinic on the day of your first dose.
  • There is no charge for the vaccine but we may bill your health insurance plan for the cost of administering it. Please be sure to bring your health insurance card if you have one. If you do not have insurance, you will not be turned away from MHEDS.
  • If you are currently isolating or experiencing symptoms of COVID-19; you can get vaccinated once you are finished isolation and your primary symptoms have resolved for at least 24 hours without Tylenol or Ibuprofen.
  • If you had COVID-19 and were treated with antibody-based treatments (monoclonal antibodies or convalescent plasma), you should delay receipt of the vaccine for 90 days.
  • If you have had a past severe allergic reaction to a medication, injectable medication or any other vaccine, please contact your Primary Care Physician to obtain a written clearance that you are able receive the Moderna vaccine. You will need to submit this before we can administer the vaccine to you.
  • You cannot receive COVID-19 vaccine if you have received any other vaccination within the last 14 days.
