MONROEVILLE, Pa. (KDKA) – The Allegheny County Health Department announced people 65 years and older can get the coronavirus at the DoubleTree Hotel in Monroeville starting Monday.


The county said in a release on Friday that an appointment is required, and appointments will be “extremely limited.” The clinic is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. and on Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.


You can register for appointments for the week of Jan. 25 using the links below:


January 25; January 26; January 27; January 28; January 29; January 30


“The links above connect users to the PrepMod scheduling system used by ACHD and PA DOH. If a vaccination slot is available for a given day, the link will redirect to a page titled “Sign Up for Vaccinations – DoubleTree Monroeville” with the date of the clinic. Individuals will be able to enter their information and select a time for vaccination. Selecting a time for vaccination is the last step of the registration process. After scheduling an appointment, users will receive a confirmation email to the address provided during registration,” a release from the department said.


“If there are no slots available for a given day, users will be taken to the PA DOH’s Getting the COVID Vaccine guide. This guide contains an eligibility quiz and a map to help individuals locate a vaccine provider,” the release added.


The announcement comes on the day Allegheny Health Network said it is suspending the scheduling of COVID-19 vaccination for the general public due to the low amount of supply available on hand.
