The hospital says it hasn’t been resupplied with the Pfizer vaccine for two weeks, so they have to cancel first dose appointments this week and next week. They say this also affects on-campus vaccine clinics at Twin Towers, Dormont Place and Carnegie Retirement Residence senior living facilities.
This doesn’t affect second dose appointments at this time, the hospital says.
