Lehigh Valley Health Network closing its Lehigh Valley COVID-19 vaccine clinics – lehighvalleylive.com

Lehigh Valley Health Network plans to close its five COVID-19 vaccine clinics next month.
LVHN established the public clinics in the spring of 2021 in Palmer Township, Whitehall Township, Hazleton, Pottsville and East Stroudsburg. The clinics will close Feb. 3.
LVHN previously operated the Palmer Township clinic in an old Sears department store at the Northampton Crossings shopping center. After waning use, the shopping center site closed last August and the clinic moved to the Lehigh Valley Hospital Hecktown Oaks campus.
Following the LVHN clinic closures, initial vaccine doses for people 6 months and older, and booster shots for people 5 years and older will be available at all Lehigh Valley Physician Group primary care practices.
Scheduling for COVID-19 vaccines at these practices will open over the next two weeks, LVHN said in a release.
The news comes after Northampton County closed its testing and vaccine sites it operated with Lehigh Valley Hospital-Coordinated Health Allentown Hospital.
The drive-through COVID-19 testing and vaccine site closed in October at Coordinated Health in Bethlehem Township, and the county walk-in COVID testing site closed Friday at 2300 Highland Ave. in Bethlehem Township.
