Last week, the state Department of Health launched a new map to help health care workers not affiliated with a hospital or health care facility, find and receive the COVID-19 vaccine.
The map allows users to filter by facility type, search by address, zip code or location to find a provider.
However, looking generally at the providers across the state, there are a few takeaways worth noting.
As of this reporting, there are 479 provider facilities statewide.
Pharmacies account for 226 of the provider facilities.
Federally Qualified Health Centers account for 74 of the provider facilities.
Health Systems account for 17 of the provider facilities.
Hospitals account for 129 of the provider facilities.
“Other” facilities account for 33 of the providers facilities.
Facilities designated other include county and municipal health departments, according to state health officials.
The number of facilities varies greatly across Pennsylvania’s 67 counties.
