COVID-19 Vaccine Information

The DOC is working with the Pennsylvania Department of Health to administer the COVID-19 vaccine to inmates and staff.

DOC staff and inmates at SCI Laurel Highlands, SCI Waymart and SCI Muncy are in Phase 1A of the vaccination distribution plan because they have been federally designated a long-term care facility. While the vaccine is voluntary for staff and inmates, it is strongly encouraged.

DOC medical personnel are in Phase 1A and have begun receiving their COVID-19 vaccines at outside facilities. All other non-medical staff and inmates are in Phase 1B, with vulnerable inmates being prioritized.
