To help protect you and our citizens, Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN) is now vaccinating residents and staff of skilled nursing and long-term care facilities.
LVHN vaccination clinics for facilities
Retail pharmacies (CVS, Walgreens, etc.) are scheduling and administering vaccinations at skilled nursing and long-term care facilities. LVHN is assisting by contacting facilities with which LVHN has a relationship to inquire about unmet vaccination needs and is offering to visit the site to vaccinate staff and residents if needed.
Staff can schedule an individual COVID-19 vaccine appointment at an LVHN location
If you work for a skilled nursing facility or long-term care facility, you can schedule your appointment in three steps. Because supplies are limited, appointments are necessary to ensure enough doses of the vaccine are prepared for everyone who is scheduled to be vaccinated that day.
At this time, LVHN is only scheduling vaccination for individuals age 18 and older. If you have had a vaccine in the last 14 days, you should delay your COVID-19 vaccination. You should not receive another vaccine 14 days prior to or after your COVID-19 vaccination.
All essential workers must show their corporate ID card at their appointment. If your ID does not include a photo, you’ll be required to show a government-issued photo ID as well. If your organization does not issue ID cards, a letter printed on corporate letterhead outlining your position along with a government-issued photo ID will suffice.
- Log into MyLVHN
The easiest and fastest way to schedule a vaccination is through LVHN’s patient portal, MyLVHN. Those who do not have a MyLVHN account can create one at MyLVHN.org. You do not need to be a current patient of LVHN, LVPG or Coordinated Health to open a MyLVHN account.

Both COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective
We are administering the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines. While you will not be able to choose which vaccine you will receive, both have been proven safe and effective. After providing two months of safety from ongoing Phase 3 trials, Pfizer and Moderna were granted Emergency Use Authorization by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). 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.
How does LVHN determine who is eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine?
Vaccine supply is limited in the early stage of distribution. LVHN is committed to administering the vaccine to all members of our community as quickly as possible when it is available to the general public and will cover all costs. The LVHN plan for administering COVID-19 vaccines is determined by the Pennsylvania Department of Health phased approach to vaccination.
