Some parents told KDKA that these measures have made the whole process less worrisome.

“For a really big university too … it’s not easy, I’m sure, to navigate all that. But so far, they have done a really good job of it,” said Mandy Meiler, a parent from Philadelphia.

Pitt is also operating a vaccine clinic that is open weekly for walk-in appointments.
