Schweyer to hold flu shot/COVID-19 testing clinics Oct. 13-14 in Allentown

ALLENTOWN, Oct. 7 – Amid the health concerns of the flu and the COVID-19 pandemic, State Rep. Peter Schweyer, D-Lehigh, is encouraging residents of the 22nd Legislative District to attend one of his flu shot and COVID-19 testing and education clinics in Allentown.

The clinics will be held from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Tuesday October 13 and Wednesday, October 14 at Bucky Boyle Park. 10 Pump Place, Allentown.

"With the flu season upon us, it is absolutely critical we protect ourselves from influenza as we continue fighting COVID-19," Schweyer said. "These clinics will provide a one-stop shop to get a flu shot, get tested for COVID-19 and learn the symptoms to watch out for and how to prevent the spread of the virus."

Schweyer said his office is partnering with Saint Luke's Hospital and Health Network, the Allentown Health Bureau and other local community organizations for the clinics. Additionally, attendees will be able to learn about how his office can provide assistance on various state-related issues.

Schweyer is also reminding residents about the free COVID Alert PA app which can send notifications to their smart phones if they are potentially exposed to COVID-19 when they travel through Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey or Delaware. The app can be found in the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store by searching for “COVID Alert PA.”
