Vaccine appointments available

Conemaugh Health System will begin to vaccinate members of the community and essential workers in Pennsylvania’s Phase 1C this week at both the Conemaugh East Hills Outpatient Center and at Conemaugh Miners Medical Center in Hastings.

Both facilities are vaccinating Pennsylvanians in Phases 1A, 1B and 1C, as well as frontline workers identified as part of the state’s special initiative. Anyone over the age of 16 can begin to book their vaccination appointments now.

Conemaugh Health System and the Cambria County Emergency Management Agency are hosting a community vaccination clinic from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. April 26 at the Johnstown Galleria.

The clinic will offer more than 1,100 vaccinations, and appointments are available to anyone over the age of 16. Free parking and free public transportation are available via CamTran.

Both locations have dedicated phone lines to schedule vaccination appointments:

– Conemaugh East Hills Outpatient Center at 814-410-8400 for Pfizer, approved for adults over 16.

– Conemaugh Miners Medical Center at 814-247-3101 for Moderna, approved for adults over 18.

Due to high demand and limited supply, advance registration is required. No walk-up appointments will be available at either location.
