What we are doing:

Baby Bag Project
For National Infant Immunization Week in April, the work group presents each new mother a back pack filled with information on the importance of immunizing her child, parenting information, diapers, and other helpful baby-care items. This project is implemented at Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Hospital and the Women, Infants and Children (WIC) Program in Wellsboro, PA.

Vaccine Clinics

  • Collaborates with UPMC and The Laurel Health Centers to offer no cost COVID-19 Vaccines
  • COVID-19 Test Kits – distributes OTC COVID-19 Test Kits to vulnerable populations such as elderly, low income and underinsured.

Networking
This workgroup shares information and strives to stay abreast of newest practices in immunizations across the lifespan. New membership is always welcome. This workgroup meets bi-monthly. If interested in joining, please contact Sarah Baker, sbaker@tiogapartnership.org or call 570-723-0520.
