Discover the Difference We’re Making
Over the last year, our physicians and scientists have emerged as thought leaders in the ongoing battle against COVID-19. By making research advances and sharing what we learn, we continue to grow the body of medical knowledge needed to combat COVID-19 in both children and adults. Through it all, our commitment to our patients has never wavered — we remain innovative and dedicated to providing world-class care for children, here and around the world.
Meeting a Community Need: COVID-19 Vaccination Program
As part of CHOP’s steadfast commitment to pediatric health and the broader healthcare community in our region, CHOP partnered with the Philadelphia Department of Public Health (PDPH) and various Philadelphia school networks to immunize more than 19,000 personnel at schools and early childhood education/daycare centers across Philadelphia. Many CHOP clinicians and staff members volunteered their time in clinic to support this historic public health effort.
Our expansive COVID-19 vaccination efforts have also included non-affiliated healthcare workers as well as young adults and adolescents.
