Mount Nittany Health weekly COVID update (May 7)
There are currently 16 COVID positive inpatients at Mount Nittany Medical Center, ages 48 to 93, with 17 COVID related admissions, and an average daily census of 19 COVID positive inpatients this first week in May.
To date, we have given or scheduled a total of more than 42,000 doses of COVID-19 vaccine at Mount Nittany Health. However, with less than 36 percent of Centre County fully vaccinated, we still have a long way to go until the majority of our community is vaccinated and we can return to some semblance of normalcy again.
With all Pennsylvanians ages 16 and older eligible to schedule their vaccination appointments – 16- and 17-year-olds are currently eligible for the Pfizer vaccine – we strongly encourage everyone that is eligible to sign up for a vaccine as soon as possible.
To sign up for your COVID-19 vaccine at Mount Nittany Health, you can register on our COVID-19 webpage at mountnittany.org/coronavirus. Click “Sign up now” and complete the form at your convenience. As a reminder, you do not need to be a Mount Nittany Health patient to request an appointment, and there is no out-of-pocket cost for the vaccine. We will contact you with your appointment date and time.
As we continue to remind everyone, it is essential that continue to work to consistently practice safety measures including masking, frequent hand washing and social distancing. Please help us by doing your part.
