First Drive-Through Vaccination Clinic in Northampton County Set for March 27 at Northampton Community College

Vaccination appointments are currently filled. 

Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN) will hold its first drive-through vaccination clinic in Northampton County Saturday, March 27, 8 a.m.-4 p.m. at Northampton Community College (NCC) in Bethlehem, Pa.

On this date, we expect to provide 3,000 first doses of Moderna vaccine to people in Pennsylvania’s Phase 1A. All COVID-19 vaccines provided by LVHN are free.

Appointments are required and will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. To schedule an appointment for the NCC drive-through clinic or any other LVHN COVID-19 vaccination event, people in Phase 1A can sign in to MyLVHN. You also can schedule an appointment by calling our COVID-19 Vaccine Hotline at 833-584-6283 (833-LVHN-CVD). However, due to large demand and call volume, you may be on hold and appointments may be taken while you wait. MyLVHN will be your fastest and easiest way to schedule.

Arrive for your appointment at the time it is scheduled

Your appointment holds your dose of vaccine, so you do not need to arrive early for your appointment. Appointments help maintain a steady flow at the vaccination. Read more about what to expect at an LVHN COVID-19 drive-through vaccination clinic.

If you receive your first dose of vaccine at this event, your second dose will automatically be scheduled for Saturday, April 24, at Northampton Community College.

LVHN is committed to keeping our community informed about vaccine availability in real time. Here is how we are doing so.

When LVHN receives a vaccine shipment

People with a MyLVHN account will see an announcement in the portal that appointments are available. We will post a green alert at the top of our website, LVHN.org, telling you that appointments are available. LVHN typically receives vaccine shipments on Tuesdays when supply is available. People seeking a vaccination should check MyLVHN regularly for the latest announcement.

Please remember that more than 300,000 people in Phase 1A are waiting to get vaccinated by LVHN. Appointments are filled on a first-come, first-served basis and are taken very fast. At LVHN, we administer the vaccine very fast too, using all the doses we receive within one week.

When all available appointments are filled

People with a MyLVHN account will see an announcement in the portal that appointments are no longer available. We will post a red alert at the top of our website, LVHN.org, telling you that appointments are not currently available.

When we receive a new vaccine shipment, we will post a new announcement about newly available appointments. The ability to schedule an appointment is dependent upon the supply of available vaccine at LVHN, which is determined by the state of Pennsylvania.

LVHN will continue to expand its mass immunization program. Sites in other locations are being established in coordination with local health bureaus and authorities. An appointment is needed to receive the vaccine at all LVHN locations, including the mass-vaccination sites.
