WGH opens to 65 and over vaccine registration

There are now more Warren County options for public COVID-19 vaccinations.

Warren General Hospital has announced that it is accepting registrations for clinics for Warren County residents who are 65 and over.

“These vaccination clinics are for individuals who qualify under the PA Department of Health’s most recent definition Group 1 A recipients,” according to a release from Director of Marketing and Business Development George Lilja. “There will be no walk-in clinics.”

Registration forms may be found at Warren General’s website — www.WGH.org.

“We ask that Warren County residents register on one site only,” Lilja said. “This will avoid duplication and assist in vaccine scheduling.”

Other entities in the county that are providing vaccine include Gaughn’s Drug Store and Tidioute Health Center.

Once a person is registered, they only need to wait.

“A hospital representative will contact you from the information you provide to schedule an appointment,” Lilja said.

When the hospital will be able to start holding public clinics is unknown. Like other clinics, the hospital’s will be at the mercy of the availability of the vaccine.

“Clinics will be scheduled based on the availability of vaccine that is distributed through the PA Department of Health,” Lilja said.

Each patient will be scheduled for a second dose at the time of their first vaccine.

Anyone with questions is encouraged to call the WGH COVID-19 Information Line at (814) 723-3319.
