COVID-19 information for residents in the 7th Senatorial District:

Philadelphia Resident Vaccine Information

The Philadelphia Department of Public Health is providing COVID-19 vaccine to all Philadelphia residents. Unfortunately, there is not enough vaccine in the city right now for everyone who wants it. So the Health Department needs to make sure that people who are at the highest risk from COVID can get access to it first. This form will let the Health Department know that you are interested in receiving the COVID-19 vaccine, and make sure that people with the highest risk can get it first. If you cannot complete this form, please call the Health Department at (215) 685-5488 or email covid@phila.gov.

The following questions will help the Health Department figure out when you should be able to get the COVID-19 vaccine. Some questions will help us contact you when you are eligible and there is a vaccine for you. The information entered on this form will be kept confidential with the Philadelphia Department of Public Health. It will only be used to contact you about how you can register to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. It may take several weeks or even months before that happens.
