Appointments Required for COVID-19 Vaccines Through LVHN

Walk-in vaccination no longer available at LVHN COVID-19 vaccine clinics due to increasing demand for shots

Appointments are required for COVID-19 vaccination beginning Nov. 1, 2021.

Beginning Monday, Nov. 1, Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN) will offer COVID-19 vaccinations, including booster shots, through appointment only. Walk-in vaccinations are no longer available at this time.

We have made this change in response to an increased demand for vaccines and booster shots, and in anticipation of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine receiving emergency use authorization (EUA) for children ages 5-11. Appointment-only vaccinations support the safety and experience of those receiving vaccines under our care, allowing our clinicians to adequately plan and prepare for the number of individuals expected at each location.

You can schedule an appointment for a booster dose or first dose by calling our vaccine hotline at 833-584-6283 (833-LVHN-CVD) Monday–Friday, 8:30 a.m.–5:30 p.m. or by using MyLVHN, our patient portal. MyLVHN is an easy and convenient way to select the day, time and location for your shot.
