Supply and demand issues may persist, but at least geographically, it may be a little more convenient to get a COVID-19 vaccine in Bucks County, writes Doug Gross for the Yardley Patch.
Neshaminy Mall’s vaccine operation is now up and running. The operations at the three Bucks County Community College campuses (Bristol, East Rockhill and Newtown Township) are shooting rapid-fire. And the ones at the Giant Supermarket in Warwick and St. Lukes in Quakertown are expected to be online soon.
With this much capacity, health department director Dr. David Damsker said the county could give more than 10,000 first- and second-dose shots in a week.
In all, 53,019 people had been fully vaccinated in Bucks County by March 12, while another 48,815 have received a single dose of a two-dose vaccine. The county ranks fourth in the state in the number of vaccinations administered.
The Pennsylvania Department of Health sent 20,660 doses of vaccine to providers in Bucks County last week — a 50-percent increase over the shipment from the week before.
Bucks County residents looking to be inoculated can begin the process at the county’s Coronavirus Vaccine Information page.
