Meadville, PA – Meadville Medical Center (MMC) is postponing the
scheduled Point of Distribution (POD) for the COVID-19 vaccine on Saturday,
February 20th and Monday, February 22nd. This comes in addition to the previously postponed POD on Thursday, February 18th.
These postponements are a result of a delay in shipping from Pfizer to
the medical center. MMC is attempting to contact everyone who was scheduled
to receive a dose on one of these three days and let them know of the
New dates will be scheduled when the medical center receives the additional
doses, and everyone affected will be contacted with their new appointment
date and time. MMC has no additional information from the Department of
Health or Pfizer as to when that may be.
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention has issued guidance that
individuals may receive their second dose of the Pfizer vaccine within
42 days of the first and still receive the full benefits.
