A Message from Steven Sivak, MD, Chair of Einstein Healthcare Network's Vaccine Task Force:
Einstein began vaccinating our staff for COVID-19 in December. We are currently awaiting directions from local, state and federal authorities on plans for vaccine distribution to the public. In the meantime, we are actively preparing to support vaccination efforts for our patients and the general public, which may include on site locations or supporting the health departments in the communities that we serve. Please check this page for updates. Visit the Pennsylvania Department of Health website or the Montgomery County website for the latest on the vaccine rollout, including lists of vaccination sites as they become available.

As a reminder, it’s important to continue practicing COVID-19 safety precautions, including mask wearing, social distancing and hand washing. But, it’s just as important to see your healthcare provider if you’re not feeling well and to continue to get your annual check-ups and screenings. We offer both in-person and virtual visits. Find your physician in our directory to make an appointment.
Einstein Employees Getting the Shot
Got the Shot
Family and Non-Affiliated Workers (Healthcare and Others)
Family members and non-healthcare workers: We know many people have questions about when family members or other non-healthcare workers will be eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. Einstein is currently still in the first phase of the city- and state-guided vaccine distribution process. Timing is still unclear concerning the next phases. Learn more about how the process will roll-out.
Non-Affiliated Healthcare Workers: We are working hard to implement the order of the Secretary of the Pennsylvania Department of Health directing certain Pennsylvania hospitals to allocate 10% of their vaccine supplies to non-hospital-affiliated health care workers. Learn more.
