The Plan for Pitt: Build Foundational Strength

The Petersen Event Center
On Jan. 28 and 29, the Allegheny County Health Department will provide COVID-19 vaccinations to Pitt health care students in the state’s Group 1A designation at the University’s Petersen Events Center. Clinical students in the health sciences who are patient-facing have been invited to take part at this time, per the direction of the ACHD. In addition to this clinic, UPMC is also vaccinating a number of our patient-facing health care personnel. Pitt is awaiting approval from the state to be an independent vaccine provider.
