Philadelphia moves to Phase 1C of vaccine rollout on Monday

Additional groups in Philadelphia will be eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine starting Monday as the city moves to Phase 1C. 

The Health Department has asked vaccine providers, including pharmacies, to allow these prioritized groups to set appointments.

The first four groups include the following:

  • Sanitation workers
  • Maintenance and janitorial staff
  • Utility workers
  • Postal and package delivery workers

Previously prioritized groups in Philadelphia Phase 1A and 1B are still eligible and are encouraged to seek out vaccination opportunities.

Other groups prioritized in Philadelphia Phase 1C, including those in higher education, public-facing finance roles, transportation (including airport and train workers, and taxi and rideshare workers), construction, telecommunications and IT, the press, the legal industry, and public health workers will be made eligible later in April.
