Harrisburg, PA – The Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency (PEMA) and the Department of Health today announced that AMI Expeditionary Healthcare would oversee operations and medical care for the new Regional Vaccination Clinic (RVC) at the Bryce Jordan Center on Penn State’s University Park campus in Centre County.
The site plans to administer 600 doses a day upon opening Friday April 9 at 11a.m. “We are honored to again be working with the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania as it continues to ramp up its fight against the pandemic,” said Dr. Andrew Walker, AMI’s Expeditionary Healthcare’s chief executive and co-founder. “Shot by shot we will get this done.”
The site will open to administer vaccines on Friday, April 9 at 11 a.m. with appointments available on April 9, 10, 11, and 12. Beginning April 15, the RVC will operate five days a week from Thursdays through Mondays. The RVC will operate noon to 8 p.m. on weekdays and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekends.
“There will be capacity to administer more as operations ramp up,” said PEMA Director Randy Padfield. “This is a centrally-located site that will serve thousands of people from not only Centre County but surrounding counties as well.”
Anyone eligible for a vaccine can make an appointment online or by calling 1-844-545-3450. The clinic is open to anyone who is eligible regardless of county of residence – you can check your eligibility online.
We are pleased with this latest effort to ensure vaccine is available to Pennsylvanians,” Acting Secretary of Health Alison Beam said. “The Wolf Administration is committed in our efforts to work with high throughput providers to get the Commonwealth vaccinated. We know that this regional vaccination clinic will serve as a prime location for many Pennsylvanians to get vaccinated, and we encouraged people to get vaccinated as soon as they are eligible.”
The Pennsylvania National Guard (PANG) and AMI Expeditionary Healthcare, LLC, a health organization contracted by PEMA for planning and staffing assistance at Commonwealth-established vaccine sites, will direct operations and administer doses at the site.
TrackMy Solutions has partnered with AMI and PEMA to leverage its unique technology to report and track vaccine administration for patients through the opening of the mass vaccination clinic at Bryce Jordan Center on the Penn State Campus.
To date, AMI has administered over 184,000 COVID-19 vaccines, across multiple states, counties and vaccination sites.
