UPMC Hamot is expanding their COVID-19 vaccines to patients who are at high risk.
UPMC Hamot announced their initiative to begin vaccinating those who are age 90 and up.
Representatives are expected to call patients who are part of UPMC Hamot’s medical health records based on who is at the highest risk.
Patients that are contacted can respond by agreeing on a vaccination appointment time.
“Those that are receiving this vaccination are so appreciative. We want the community to know that once more become available we will be able to expand our phases,” said David Gibbons, President of UPMC Hamot.
The pilot vaccine clinic is taking place at UPMC’s Operation and Call Center at 380 East Bayfront Highway.
