BCHC is committed to vaccinate as many of our community members as we can.  All Pennsylvania residents over the age of 12 are able to get the vaccine.

There are a lot of questions regarding the vaccine.  It’s ok – just ask your healthcare provider.  Here are some of the common myths.










In September, BCHC will be offering the Covid 19 vaccine every Monday – Thursday at our various locations from 9:00 am – 3:00 pm. We will have Pfizer vaccines (2 dose – ages 12 and older), Moderna (2 dose – ages 18 and older) and J&J (1 dose – ages 18 and older) available.    We will be able to accommodate just second doses if needed. Please click the calendar to see each location.

The Do Your Part Berks website https://www.doyourpartberks.com/  will continue to inform you of vaccine availability options in our community or  https://vaccinatepa.org/counties/Berks_County
