Non-affiliated Healthcare Personnel COVID-19 Vaccination Program

As a leading provider of healthcare for children and a COVID-19 vaccination provider within the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) provides vaccinations according to guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Pennsylvania Department of Health.

Guidance from the Pennsylvania Department of Health, as outlined in the Pennsylvania COVID-19 Interim Vaccination Plan, calls for the prioritized vaccination of healthcare personnel, both employed by CHOP and in the surrounding community, who risk coming into contact with the virus as part of their job.

As part of CHOP’s commitment to the broader healthcare community in our region and in accordance with the recent Pennsylvania Department of Health order, CHOP will begin designating 10% of each vaccine allocation received from the Pennsylvania Department of Health to the support of the vaccination of eligible non-CHOP-affiliated healthcare personnel. Eligible personnel meet ALL of the following criteria:

  • Meet the definition of Phase 1A healthcare personnel in the Pennsylvania COVID-19 Interim Vaccination Plan
  •  Live or practice in a Pennsylvania county other than Philadelphia
  • Are not employed by a hospital or health system

For healthcare personnel located in Philadelphia, please consult the Philadelphia Department of Public Health (PDPH) website to explore participation in their unaffiliated healthcare personnel vaccination program. For all others in Pennsylvania, if the criteria above does not apply to your organization or personnel, please consult the Pennsylvania Department of Health website for more information and guidance.

For healthcare personnel who live or work in New Jersey, please consult the New Jersey COVID-19 Information Hub for more information and guidance. 

For healthcare personnel who live or work in Delaware, please consult the Delaware Department of Health website for more information and guidance. 

Application for Enrollment

If your healthcare organization would like to enroll in CHOP’s non-affiliated vaccination program, please complete the survey below. This survey is intended to be completed by a designated representative from your organization and will ask you to provide information about your organization and details on the Phase 1A personnel you want to enroll in the program. CHOP will contact practices and organizations that enroll in the program once we are able to invite their personnel to schedule vaccinations. This may take a number of weeks based upon demand and vaccine/resource availability.
