According to the state Department of Health, Pennsylvania has started to vaccinate against COVID-19 and is working to expand eligibility to more groups of people.
Supplies are extremely limited, leading to officials prioritizing who gets vaccinated first — starting with those most at risk of catching COVID and experiencing complications.
The Department of Health is expanding Phase 1a COVID-19 vaccination efforts to include anyone age 65 and older and those ages 16 to 64 with serious medical conditions that increase their risk for illness.
To see if you are currently eligible, visit https://www.pa.gov/guides/get-vaccinated/.
For questions about the vaccination process, call the Pennsylvania Department of Health hotline at 1-877-724-3258.

Community Response Team
In good times and bad, the Cranberry Township residents have a history of supporting one another. Fundraisers, charity drives and service projects are commonplace and a large part of what makes the Township a great place to live, work and play.
Now, with many members of our community facing an unprecedented shutdown of daily life, that community spirit is needed more than ever. That’s why the Township is seeking individuals to help ease the burden the pandemic is having on the community. Volunteers will help provide those in need with essential basic human needs like food, water, or toiletries. By doing this, they can help make the day a little brighter in a term of uncertainty.
Healthy volunteers who want to help, as well as residents in need of assistance are asked to contact the Township via links at CranberryTownship.org/CRT or by calling 724-776-4806.
