News from April 14, 2021

The Penn Cares COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic is now open by appointment only in the Gimbel Gymnasium at the Pottruck Health and Fitness Center, 3701 Walnut Street. Vaccines are being administered to eligible University faculty, staff, and postdocs according to the phased approach outlined by the Philadelphia Department of Public Health (PDPH)

Vaccine appointments are still available, so please schedule a time to get vaccinated if you are in one of the following Phase 1c populations and live in Philadelphia:
  • Part-time and full-time faculty, staff, and postdocs
  • Retired and emeritus faculty
  • Third-party workers and those living in on-campus housing currently eligible for Penn Cares testing
  • Temporary workers

You can schedule an appointment by going to and clicking on the “Schedule Test or Vaccination“ button on the homepage. From there, select “Schedule Vaccination,” read and accept consent to vaccinate, select “Participant,” and follow the instructions to schedule your vaccine appointments. Be sure to select the Gimbel Pottruck location. 

When scheduling your first appointment, you must select a day and time for your second dose. You will receive an email confirmation. A reminder email will be sent one day prior to your appointments.   

Individuals eligible to be vaccinated should check regularly for open appointments throughout the week as vaccine availability may increase.
