WEST READING, PA — In accordance with Pennsylvania Department of Health (DOH) guidelines, Tower Health has opened the 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 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 website for more information. Individuals do not need to be a Tower Health patient to create a MyTowerHealth account. 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 appointment.
“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. Appointments can be canceled through the 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, practice social distancing, and wash your hands.
