Drive-Through Vaccination Clinic for People Age 75+



LVHN’s first drive-through COVID-19 vaccination clinic will take place at Dorney Park in Allentown on Wednesday, Jan. 27, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. On this date, we will vaccinate people age 75 and older. An appointment is required at this and all of LVHN’s vaccination locations. The vaccination is free. This map provides directions for people attending the clinic.

Due to the current supply of vaccines and the PA Board of Health phased priority, no one under 75 can currently schedule for the Dorney Park drive-through clinic. The PA Department of Health Vaccination Phases Chart was updated 1.19.2021. We will continue to provides updates as we obtain them.

People age 75 and older are urged to use MyLVHN, our health network’s free, secure and easy-to-use patient portal, to self-schedule a vaccination appointment. 

  • Those who already have a MyLVHN account will receive a notification to schedule a vaccination appointment.
  • Those who wish to enroll in MyLVHN can visit LVHN.org/vaccines and click “Sign Up” at the top of the page. Once enrolled, these people also will receive a notification to schedule an appointment.

While MyLVHN is the fastest, easiest way to schedule an appointment, another option is to call 833-LVHN-CVD (833-584-6283). The ability to schedule an appointment is dependent upon the supply of available vaccine at LVHN, which is determined by the State of Pennsylvania.  

LVHN has extensive mass immunization experience, hosting drive-through flu shot clinics for nearly two decades, where we have vaccinated as many as 8,000 people in one day. We will apply that experience to large-scale drive-through COVID-19 vaccine events throughout the region to supplement our existing vaccination locations as supply is made available from the state.

We will continue to expand our mass immunization program. Sites in Northampton and Monroe counties are being established in coordination with local health bureaus and authorities. An appointment is needed to receive the vaccine at all LVHN locations, including the mass-immunization sites, where we expect to vaccinate at least 5,000 people per day when we have adequate vaccine supply.

Those who already have a scheduled vaccination appointment are urged to keep it. The LVHN plan for administering COVID-19 vaccines is determined by the Pennsylvania Department of Health’s phased approach to vaccination, and vaccine supply is limited in the early stage of distribution.

Even after receiving the COVID-19 vaccine, people must continue to wear a mask in public, wash hands frequently and stay socially distant until the majority of our community is vaccinated. For more details about vaccines, visit LVHN.org/vaccines
