An Update on Vaccination Plans for PSOM


In anticipation of the City’s decision to move to the next phase of vaccination plans in April 2021, the health system plans to start scheduling vaccine appointments for members of our PSOM community who have not yet been vaccinated.  We have reserved a small number of appointments each day at Penn Presbyterian Medical Center and will host a PSOM vaccine clinic on the 15th floor of the Perelman Center on April 13, 14, and 15 [second doses will be administered the week of May 2nd]. 

Instructions on how to sign-up and schedule your appointment will be sent in a separate email from

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we continue to vaccinate our employees and patients as quickly and equitably as we can.

Lastly, it remains imperative that everyone – vaccinated or not – continues to abide by the following: use PennOpen Pass; enroll in Penn Cares and COVID SAFE surveillance testing (as applicable); and practice mitigation measures of universal wearing of masks, maintaining physical distance, avoiding large crowds, and washing hands frequently.
