Doylestown Health has not only been a leader throughout this pandemic but a leader in the vaccine distribution for our county. Since the very first Pfizer doses of COVID vaccine became available on December 17th, 2020; Doylestown Hospital in collaboration with our physician community and under the direction of the State Department of Health, made the commitment to provide the vaccine to the community in which we serve.
Over the last several months we have routinely administered more than 1,000 doses daily, five days a week, and providing over 24,300 associate hours. Due to our commitment to serving the community we are ecstatic to report that we provided more vaccine than any health system in the county; Doylestown Health has administered more than 70,000 doses to our general community, vulnerable groups (e.g.- comorbidities, elderly, and socioeconomically vulnerable), children 12 years and older, healthcare workers, and our patients.
For available appointments for those 12 years and older, please call (267) 810-1820
While community vaccination has been viewed as our highest priority project, it was only accomplished with great commitment of the organization and associates; as it oftentimes created many challenges to also simultaneously maintaining the health system’s breadth of quality services.
Doylestown Hospital has administered more than 10,000 second doses in May and will continue to be an administration location for individuals in need of vaccination. As the local availability and access to vaccines have dramatically increased recently, Doylestown Hospital has been able to reallocate resources to our more routine clinical responsibilities.
We thank everyone in the community and within the organization for their support of these efforts.
