LVHN Hosts COVID-19 Mass Vaccination Drive-Through Event on April 29 at Northampton Community College

Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN) will hold its next COVID-19 mass vaccination event in Northampton County at Northampton Community College in Bethlehem Township on Thursday, April 29. On this date, we expect to administer 3,500 first doses of the Moderna vaccine for free. Everyone 18 and older is eligible to receive the Moderna vaccine. The drive-through clinic will be held from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., and appointments are required. Those without an appointment will not be eligible for vaccination.

Scheduling a vaccination appointment for any LVHN COVID-19 vaccination event, including drive-through clinics, is now easier than ever:

  1. People with a MyLVHN account, the health network’s patient portal, can log in and click “Schedule your appointment” next to the vaccination announcement on the home screen. Under “Menu,” you also can click “COVID-19 Vaccine Scheduling.” You also can click “Visits” and “Schedule an appointment.” MyLVHN is the fastest and easiest way to schedule.

  2. People without a MyLVHN account can visit LVHN.org/appointment and follow the directions.

  3. You can call LVHN’s COVID-19 Vaccine Hotline at 833-584-6283 (833-LVHN-CVD). The COVID-19 Vaccine Hotline hours of operation are Monday-Friday 8:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m. and Saturday-Sunday 9 a.m.-5 p.m. However, because of large demand and call volume, you may be placed on hold.

Appointments will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

LVHN is prepared to vaccinate as many people as possible by also offering appointments at Lehigh Valley Hospital (LVH)–Pocono, LVH–Hazleton and LVH–Schuylkill.

In addition to these hospital locations, first-dose appointments also can be scheduled at clinics located at the former A.C. Moore store, 2633 MacArthur Road, Whitehall, and at Northampton Crossings shopping center in the former Sears Appliance and Hardware store, 3768 Easton Nazareth Highway, Lower Nazareth Township. All locations are by appointment only. With these expanded efforts, LVHN expects to deliver up to 36,000 doses per week.

LVHN is committed to administering the vaccine as quickly as possible. LVHN will cover all costs. The LVHN plan for administering COVID-19 vaccines is determined by the Pennsylvania Department of Health’s phased approach to vaccination.For current vaccination information, visit LVHN.org/vaccines.
