CAMBRIA COUNTY, Pa. (WTAJ) — CamTran, a Johnstown transportation service, partnered with Highlands Health Clinic to offer door-to-door COVID-19 vaccines Thursday, May 20 from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Highlands Health Clinic employees will be on board a CamTran bus and travel through a pre-determined route arriving at people’s homes to vaccinate them. Anyone interested in receiving a vaccine through this service will need to pre-register.
Community members will need to call the clinic at 814-534-6242 and provide their home address, phone number and date of birth to register. The Clinic will then notify the individual of a date to expect their home visit.
The bus will depart from CamTran’s facility in Woodvale and travel through Parkhill, Vinco, Nanty Glo, Vintondale, Twin Rocks and Ebensburg. Pre-registered people will receive the 1st dose of the vaccine and CamTran will retrace the route to deliver the 2nd dose.
“By partnering with the Highlands Health Clinic we are able to reach a population that would otherwise go unvaccinated which defeats the purpose of making the vaccine available to everyone
who would like to be vaccinated against COVID-19″ CamTran Assistant Executive Director and Chief Operating Officer, Josh Yoder said, in a press release.
The service will be ongoing within Cambria County every other week until further notice.
