As Patton Pharmacy receives available COVID-19 vaccines to administer to our community in accordance with the PA Department of Health guidelines and vaccine plan, we will be updating this page with information.

COVID-19 cases are still high across the commonwealth. We encourage you to continue to wear a mask, keep your distance, and stay up to date on Pennsylvania’s vaccination program.

Vaccines are safe and effective and the best way to protect you and those around you from serious illness.

The COVID-19 Vaccine will be distributed to Pennsylvanians in a phased approach. Currently, Pennsylvania is in Phase 1A.

How Do I Help Stop the Spread?

Wear A Mask in Public

Members of the public are encouraged to wear homemade cloth or fabric masks. Save surgical masks and N95 respirators  for our health care workers and first responders. Remember this saying: “My mask protects you, your mask protects me.”

Wear a mask when:

    • Shopping at essential businesses, like grocery stores or pharmacies

    • Visiting your health care provider

    • On public transportation

    • Interacting with customers/clients at essential businesses

    • Feeling sick, coughing or sneezing

How to make a homemade mask:

Materials needed:

  • Fabric (100% cotton is most effective)

  • Fabric Ties

  • Scissors

  • Sewing machine or a needle and thread

Instructions:

  • Measure and cut two pieces of fabric in a rectangle pattern to fit snugly around the face (size

    12 inches by 6 inches is standard for adults).

  • Tightly sew both layers together on all edges.

  • Cut fabric ties to fit around the ears.

  • Sew the ties to the insides of the mask on the smaller edge, repeat on both sides.

  • Resew the sides to ensure a tight seal between both pieces of fabric and the earpiece.

Wash Your Hands

Washing your hands is one of the most important steps you can take in staying healthy. When you wash, make sure you:

  1. Wet your hands with clean, running water (warm or cold), turn off the tap, and apply soap.

  2. Lather your hands by rubbing them together with the soap. Lather the backs of your hands, between your fingers, and under your nails.

  3. Scrub your hands for at least 20 seconds. Need a timer? Hum the “Happy Birthday” song from beginning to end twice.

  4. Rinse your hands well under clean, running water.

  5. Dry your hands using a clean towel or air dry them. Washing hands with soap and water is the best way to get rid of germs in most situations.

If soap and water are not readily available, you can use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60 percent alcohol.Cover Your Mouth and NoseCover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your elbow when coughing or sneezing. It may prevent those around you from getting sick. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) does not recommend the routine use of face masks and respirators in the community. Most often, the spread of germs from person-to-person happens among close contacts (within 6 feet).
