Gov. Tom Wolf defended Pennsylvania's rollout of the coronavirus vaccine Tuesday, saying it was left in the lurch by the Trump administration's overpromises.



The drive-through COVID-19 vaccination clinic will be held from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The vaccination is free.

"LVHN has extensive mass immunization experience. We've hosted drive-through flu shot clinics for nearly two decades, where we have vaccinated as many as 8,000 people in one day. We will apply that experience to large-scale drive-through COVID-19 vaccine events throughout the region to supplement our existing vaccination locations as supply is made available from the state," officials said.

Those interested can sign up by setting up a MyLVH account on the network's website or by calling 833-584-6283 (833-LVHN-CVD).
