Family Matters DPC is no longer reliably receiving first doses of vaccine from the PA DOH.  We expect to be able to administer second doses to all patients who received a first dose through us.

We have been able to vaccinate thousands in our community!  We sincerely thank the other members of Direct Care Physicians of Pittsburgh, the Allegheny County Medical Society, and numerous volunteers who worked so hard to make this happen!

    Due to the ever-changing nature of these vaccine appointments, we are no longer able to keep this section of our vaccine page up to date.  If you are seeking a covid-19 vaccine, your best bet would be to check with the large health systems, large retail pharmacy chains, and Allegheny County Health Department.  

    The Pennsylvania Department of Health has a vaccine mapper for available appointments accross the state:
