“The links connect users to the PrepMod scheduling system used by ACHD and PA DOH. If a vaccination slot is available for a given day, the link will redirect to a page titled “Sign Up for Vaccinations – DoubleTree Monroeville” with the date of the clinic. Individuals will be able to enter their information and select a time for vaccination. Selecting a time for vaccination is the last step of the registration process. After scheduling an appointment, users will receive a confirmation email to the address provided during registration,” a release from the department said.
“If there are no slots available for a given day, users will be taken to the PA DOH’s Getting the COVID Vaccine guide. This guide contains an eligibility quiz and a map to help individuals locate a vaccine provider,” the release added.
The clinic was first announced last month, on the day Allegheny Health Network said it is suspending the scheduling of COVID-19 vaccination for the general public due to the low amount of supply available on hand.MORE NEWS: Man Linked To 3 Ohio Homicides Dies After Detroit Shooting
