Pocono Raceway’s Tricky the Fox Does His Part by Getting Vaccinated
Are foxes eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine? If you’re Tricky the fox from Pocono Raceway, you are. He was among those lined up to receive their first dose of the Moderna vaccine at LVHN’s second mass vaccination event at Pocono Raceway in Long Pond. Tricky was excited to show just how simple it is to make an appointment and get the vaccine.
“As soon as Tricky was eligible to receive the vaccine, he set up a MyLVHN account, made an appointment and came out here today to do his part,” said Kevin Heaney, Pocono Raceway’s Senior Director of Marketing Communications. “The process was fast and easy, and Tricky is feeling great!” he said.
LVHN is committed to administering the vaccine as quickly as possible to those who are eligible at the time. 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.
To schedule an appointment for any LVHN COVID-19 vaccination event including drive-through clinics, people in Phase 1A and Phase 1B, can sign in to MyLVHN, the health network’s patient portal. Essential workers can fill out the COVID-19 Essential Worker Questionnaire and will be notified when they can schedule their vaccination. You also can schedule an appointment by calling our 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 on hold. MyLVHN will be your fastest and easiest way to schedule.
The best thing you can do to preregister for vaccination is to create a MyLVHN account. You’ll be notified when you are eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine and can schedule your vaccine appointment on MyLVHN.

Even after receiving the COVID-19 vaccine, people must continue to wear a mask in public, wash hands frequently and stay socially distant until the majority of our community is vaccinated.
