In accordance with Pennsylvania Department of Health (DOH) guidelines, Tower Health has opened scheduling of vaccination appointments to all individuals 16 years of age and older. Individuals age 16 and 17 are only able to receive the Pfizer vaccine and are required to have a guardian with them at the time of the vaccination. Administration of vaccines remains dependent upon supplies provided to Tower Health by the State. Tower Health is currently providing the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines.
All Tower Health COVID-19 vaccinations are administered by appointment only. Individuals can self-schedule through a MyTowerHealth account. If you do not already have a MyTowerHealth account, sign up here or visit the Tower Health COVID-19 vaccine page for more information. Individuals do not need to be Tower Health patients to create MyTowerHealth accounts. Individuals with limited or no internet access should call 484-659-3000, Monday through Friday, between 7:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. to schedule a first-dose appointment. This phone number is reserved only for individuals without internet access. Second-dose appointments are scheduled during first-dose appointments.
“I encourage everyone to get vaccinated,” said Debra Powell, MD, Chief, Section of Infectious Diseases and Medical Director, Infection Prevention at Reading Hospital - Tower Health. “With all Pennsylvanians now eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine, I am optimistic that we can help mitigate the spread of the virus and keep additional members of our community safe and healthy.”
Many individuals have signed up for vaccines from multiple providers. Tower Health reminds everyone that once you have received your vaccination from any provider, you should cancel any other appointment requests. Canceling an unneeded appointment will allow Tower Health and other vaccine providers to more effectively schedule and offer the vaccine to other interested persons. COVID-19 vaccine appointments with Tower Health can be canceled through a MyTowerHealth account.
The COVID-19 vaccine is another tool to help the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. Positive COVID-19 cases continue in our region and across the country. Reducing the spread of the virus will enable the vaccine to do its work faster, making it crucial to continue wearing a mask, practicing social distancing, and washing your hands.
