COVID-19 Vaccine Information

Updated: 2/18/2021

The availability of the COVID-19 vaccine is a major milestone in this pandemic and represents hope for so many of us. The supply of vaccine remains limited and the rules for distribution change quickly. This website will be updated with information as it evolves.

Fox Chase Cancer Center is following the guidelines of the City of Philadelphia for distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine. At this time, we are only able to offer vaccinations to our patients who live in Philadelphia. We are working hard to expand who we are able to vaccinate and are hopeful that we will be able to offer the vaccine to some patients outside of Philadelphia soon.

If you are a Fox Chase patient and live in Philadelphia, you will be notified by phone, email or the MyFoxChase/MyTempleHealth portal. Due to the high interest, we cannot specify exactly when you will be contacted. We continue to appreciate your patience.

When you are contacted to schedule an appointment, we will provide information on how to schedule your first shot; your second shot will be scheduled when you arrive for your first.

If you can get a vaccine through an alternate location, we strongly encourage you to do so. The most important thing is you get vaccinated.

Scheduling a Vaccine at a Community Vaccination Site

We encourage you to try and schedule an appointment at a community vaccination site outside of Fox Chase if that becomes available to you. The most important thing is that you get vaccinated and protected from COVID-19.

Individual counties may offer you the ability to pre-register for the vaccine. If you sign up through one of those county websites, you will receive information about the status of the vaccine rollout and when it's your time to be vaccinated.

How Fox Chase Patients Will Be Notified

Fox Chase patients will be notified to schedule their vaccination by phone, email or myTempleHealth, our patient portal.

If you do not already have a myTempleHealth account, we strongly encourage you to activate your account today.
