Conemaugh Health System and Cambria County EMA Partner to Facilitate Two Community Vaccination Clinics

March 5, 2021

In partnership with Cambria County Emergency Management Agency (EMA), the Conemaugh Health System will facilitate two community clinics to vaccinate more than 1,800 individuals in Phase 1A per the CDC and Pennsylvania Department of Health guidelines. The clinics will take place at the Galleria Mall (500 Galleria Drive) on March 22 and March 29 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The clinics will take place on the lower level of the mall (between Boscov’s and Shoe Dept. Encore). Free parking is available onsite and public transportation is available via CamTram.

Registration will open on Monday, March 8, through Conemaugh Memorial Medical Center’s dedicated COVID-19 vaccination hotline (814-410-8400). Scheduling will be limited to two registrations per caller in order to accommodate as many members of the community as possible. Due to high demand and
limited supply, advance registration is required and openings are expected to fill up quickly. No walkup appointments will be available.

Registration will also be available through the health system’s MyChart service. Existing MyChart users do not need to proactively take any steps on MyChart to request a vaccination, but they should monitor their account and the email associated with the account for updates and notifications. Vaccination
appointments scheduled through MyChart may not be used by anyone except for the person who received the notification. New and existing users are not guaranteed a vaccination appointment solely by having a MyChart account.

Community members can check to see if they are eligible for Tier 1A on the PA Department of Health’s website. Those who receive their first dose at one of the two clinics will receive their second dose on April 12 or April 19 at the same location. To date, Conemaugh Memorial Medical Center has distributed at least
one vaccine dose to more than 7,000 eligible 1A members of the community.
