LVHN is Offering COVID-19 Vaccines to Community Health Care Practices
At Lehigh Valley Health Network, we value our health care partners, and we are pleased to announce that LVHN will provide vaccinations to community health care practices. We need your help getting the word out that we are offering vaccines to optometry practices in the following counties: Lehigh, Northampton, Monroe, Luzerne, Carbon, and Schuylkill. We would appreciate your help posting on social channels, groups, and sharing this message through your contacts and with society members.
We will contact you and schedule you at one of our vaccination locations at LVH-Cedar Crest, LVH-Muhlenberg, LVH-Hazleton, LVH-Schuylkill or LVH-Pocono.
We are currently administering both Pfizer and Moderna vaccines. You will not be able to choose which vaccine you receive. Both the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines have been proven safe and effective after providing two months of safety from ongoing Phase 3 trials. Data show that Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine is 95 percent effective in preventing COVID-19 while Moderna’s vaccine has shown to be 94.5 percent effective.
Thank you for doing your part and being a great partner in keeping our community safe. If you would like to learn more about vaccine safety and data, please visit our FAQs.
