Gov. Wolf, state leaders visit local vaccine clinic; stress importance of getting vaccinated


Gov. Tom Wolf, state leaders and community partners visited a local vaccine clinic to encourage eligible Pennsylvanians to do their part to end the COVID-19 pandemic by getting vaccinated. 

“Getting Pennsylvanians vaccinated is our number one priority. That’s because it’s the number one way we can fight COVID-19,” said Wolf. “Getting vaccinated is how we end this pandemic. It’s how each of us can be a part of the solution to COVID-19, and it’s a way we can protect the people around us who can’t get vaccinated yet.” 

Reading Area Community College (RACC) hosted the Community-Accessible Testing and Education (CATE) Mobile Vaccination Unit on Tuesday offering both the Johnson & Johnson and Moderna vaccines. 

“The mobile vaccination sites are a great way to bring vaccination centers closer to our communities. The sites meet people where they work, live and socialize; and tackle the challenges that may prevent people from receiving a vaccination. Reading Area Community College is proud to be a partner in the effort to get Berks County vaccinated,” said Reading Area Community College President Dr. Susan Looney.

In addition to RACC President Dr. Looney, Gov. Wolf was joined by Sen. Judy Schwank, Rep. Manual Guzman, Latino Connection Executive Director George Fernandez, and Highmark Health Vice President of Community and Civic Affairs Kathleen McKenzie offering encouragement to Pennsylvanians who are still hesitant to get vaccinated.
