Special Edition: COVID-19 Vaccines

Welcome to a special edition of Connections, ASB’s participant newsletter! Check out these two local vaccination programs available for ASB participants. Feel free to forward this email along to anyone who may be interested in these resources.

Get Vaccinated with Penn Medicine at Home

Penn Medicine at Home is currently offering the Johnson & Johnson vaccine to patients and their caregivers in their homes. To qualify, individuals must reside in Philadelphia. Patients do not need to be on service with Penn Medicine at Home. Penn Medicine will:

  • Vaccinate any willing caregivers while in the home.
  • Provide vaccinated individuals with a CDC vaccination card.
  • Report all vaccines daily to PhilaVax.

If you are interested in receiving more information, please contact Lexi Jones at or at 267-483-9244. Be prepared to share your name, date of birth, phone number and address.

Philadelphia Department of Public Health Homebound Vaccination Program

The Philadelphia Department of Public Health is currently providing COVID-19 vaccines to homebound individuals in their homes through its Homebound Vaccination Program. This program is intended for individuals who are normally unable to leave home unassisted or people living with disabilities who have been rarely able to leave their home within the past month.

The vaccines are free – no insurance required! Personal care attendants, family and other caregivers or residents of the individual’s household are eligible to be vaccinated under this program. 

Interested individuals can sign up for an in-home vaccination by visiting, calling 215-685-5488 (dial 711 for TRS/TTY assistance) or using the QR code below.
