COVID-19 Vaccination Information
Main line Health is currently vaccinating patients aged 75 and older, with an active MyChart account, whom have touched the hospital system in the last year (for example, if you’ve seen a MLH medical provider or gotten testing done at a Main Line Health facility). To get signed up for notification for appointment availability, please set up a mainline health my chart account here: MyChart | Patient Services | Main Line Health | Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Main Line Health will then send you an email notification when appointments are available for vaccination.

Effective 1/19/2021, Pennsylvania residents who are 65 or older and those who have high-risk conditions are now eligible to receive the coronavirus vaccine!! The state has expanded those eligible for vaccination in phase 1A to include anyone over 65 and people ages 16 to 64 with serious medical conditions that make them more at risk for severe illness due to COVID-19. Those high-risk conditions include cancer, chronic kidney disease, COPD, Down syndrome, heart conditions, sickle cell disease and Type 2 diabetes mellitus. Those who are immunocompromised, obese or pregnant are now eligible, as well as smokers. You can see the full list here.
To determine when you are eligible for a vaccine, you can use this tool on the state’s website.
If you are eligible to receive the vaccine, the state has an interactive map to assist you with finding a vaccine provider near you. You will then schedule an appointment with the provider. The information above has been provided by Patch local news source, 1/19/2021.
As anticipation for impending distribution of COVID-19 vaccination emerges, we are getting many calls regarding vaccine distribution. Please be aware that at this point we have no information regarding our own practice access to COVID-19 vaccines to distribute to our patients. Vaccine distribution at present is being rolled out to many large health systems, with priority for highest risk hospital healthcare workers and first responders.
Please see the following website for further information regarding the COVID-19 vaccination plan for PA:
Please be aware that this information will be continually evolving/developing as the pandemic continues. We ask that you please refrain from calling our office to ask questions regarding vaccine distribution, as it places volume overload on our telephone system and limits ability of other patient calls that require urgent attention.
We will continue to keep you apprised of the COVID-19 vaccine situation as updated details emerge. Thank you for your understanding and patience during these very unprecedented times.
