Temple is at the forefront of COVID-19 knowledge, engaging in the latest clinical research and offering innovative treatments for those who are:

  • Not hospitalized but at risk for serious illness
  • Hospitalized and feeling the impact of the disease
  • Healthcare workers at the frontline every day

COVID Vaccine

The first step in keeping you safe from the virus that causes COVID-19 is prevention. The COVID-19 vaccine decreases your risk of getting the virus. It also helps you from becoming seriously ill if you do get COVID-19.

Temple offers life-saving vaccines to those age 12+ in the Philadelphia region and to residents in the state of Pennsylvania.
