This is a message from Allegheny Alerts.
The Allegheny County Health Department (ACHD) today announced that it has expanded its partnership with the United Way of Southwestern Pennsylvania. Beginning at noon today, call takers at 2-1-1 will provide phone support for scheduling COVID-19 vaccine appointments and will answer questions about the vaccines. Anyone calling before noon today for phone registration will not be able to be registered or accommodated. The phone registration support is intended only for those 65 and older without internet access or who are having trouble navigating the registration website.
Appointments are for the Health Department’s Point of Dispensing (POD) inside the DoubleTree Hotel in Monroeville only. Appointments remain extremely limited with the approximately 750 available slots that span the next two weeks likely to fill up quickly. When all appointments have been filled, public notice will be provided and phone scheduling will end at that time.
