Philadelphia, PA - FEMA has announced that Philadelphia’s two federally-backed mass vaccination sites will be closing, and a new site located at The Pennsylvania Convention Center will be opening up.
Fema Closes Two Sites and Philadelphia Will Open a New One At The Convention Center
The two clinics closing are Esperanza, in North Philadelphia, and at the Convention Center, both supported by the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
Both locations vaccinated more than 350,000 individuals and were responsible for around 25% of all vaccinations given so far in Philadelphia County.
After the closings, The City of Philadelphia will operate a scaled-down vaccination clinic at the Pennsylvania Convention Center. Anyone who received their first dose at the Esperanza site will be sent to the City’s Convention Center site to receive their second dose or any other city-run clinic.
The new Convention Center site will be staffed by the Philadelphia Health Department and will be able to handle around 500 individuals per day.
