Laurel Health is now offering all three Coronavirus COVID-19 vaccines (Pfizer, Moderna, and Janssen) at their locations throughout Tioga and Bradford Counties, including pediatric Pfizer vaccine for those aged 5 – 11, the Pfizer vaccine dosage approved for those aged 12 – 17, and Pfizer, Moderna, or Janssen vaccine to everyone 18 and up.


Getting vaccinated against COVID-19 is the key to truly getting life back to normal. The vaccine teaches the body how to recognize, prepare for, and fight the virus more effectively, nearly eliminating the recipient’s risk of developing serious illness, chronic long-haul symptoms, hospitalization, or death. The vaccines also confer longer-term protection without the serious risks associated with contracting COVID-19. Once enough of the community is vaccinated, it becomes much more difficult for the virus to spread widely, develop new mutated strains, and harm loved ones. What’s more, the vaccine protects the recipient and those around them.
