COVID-19 Vaccine Update
Esperanza Health Center is thankful for the efforts of our entire staff and particularly our vaccination team, as we continue to administer COVID-19 vaccines to our patients, members of our community and our staff. We are also grateful for the efforts of our community partners including Esperanza, Inc., host of the FEMA Community Vaccination Center, the Philadelphia Department of Public Health and many other health care providers in getting the word out and administering vaccines over the past few months.

On May 12th, the City of Philadelphia announced that it is no longer a requirement to be a Philadelphia resident to receive the COVID-19 vaccine from a site within Philadelphia! The time is now to get the vaccine and to discuss vaccination with your health care provider if you have any questions or concerns.

  • Esperanza Health Center is administering the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine, which is approved for individuals ages 18 and older, at our Hunting Park and Kensington sites. You can learn more and register for a vaccine appointment by visiting our website at

  • We encourage those who are not yet vaccinated to find a location near you to receive the vaccine - please visit

We're grateful to our many supporters and community partners for your contributions that have made it possible for us to provide COVID-19 vaccines - thank you!
EHC Hosting Community Vaccine Clinics in May

This month, we've held walk-up community vaccine clinic events at our Kensington and Fifth Street sites, offering the single-dose Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine, which has now been approved for use for all adults age 18 and older. Esperanza recommends this vaccine for women over 50 and for men over 18; individuals with a history of blood clots should consider other COVID vaccines.

We will hold another vaccine clinic event on Monday, May 24th from 1:30 - 4:00 pm at our Kensington site (861 E. Allegheny Avenue).
