The pharmacy group which includes Bushy Run Pharmacy and Blairsville Pharmacy will hold their vaccination clinic at the former Ulta store.

“The Pennsylvania Department of Health announced last week that the state is accelerating its vaccine strategy which will make all Pennsylvanians eligible to receive a vaccine by April 19,” they said in a statement. “Mainline’s Pharmacy’s new clinic site at the Monroeville Mall will be a much-needed boost to the limited access that Allegheny County residents have had to the vaccine.”
They will hold several clinics per week and information on those sites along with registration can be found on Mainline Pharmacy Group’s website.
Once dates are finalized, registration will open for the public along with 8 other clinics in the region.MORE NEWS: West Virginia Lawmakers Approve Needle Exchange Regulations
