The Wright Center for Community Health to Offer Mobile Covid-19 Vaccination and Testing Events in Wayne County
Scranton, Pa. (April 20, 2021) – The Wright Center for Community Health announces two COVID-19 vaccination and testing events in Wayne County, which will be offered by medical staff aboard its mobile medical unit, Driving Better Health. Walk-ups are welcome, though appointments are preferred by calling 570-230-0019 or visiting TheWrightCenter.org to schedule. Mask-wearing is required and social distancing will be observed.
The first pop-up event will be held Thursday, April 22, 9:30 a.m to 4 p.m., at The Dock on Wallenpaupack, 201 Pa Route 507, Hawley. The second is slated for Thursday, April 29, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., at Hawley Silk Mill, 8 Silk Mill Drive, Hawley.
At each mobile event, patients have the option to receive the COVID-19 vaccine with or without additional primary care services at the time of their vaccination. Patients can choose:
- Vaccine only
- Vaccine with vital sign assessment
- Vaccine with vital sign assessment and primary care visit
As a primary care provider that strives to provide the highest level of care to patients and families, The Wright Center encourages patients to engage in a primary care visit while receiving vaccinations, including the COVID-19 vaccine. However, patients have the option to choose to receive the COVID-19 vaccine only, should they wish to do so.
If patients choose to have a vital sign assessment and/or a primary care visit, they will be charged for these services, which will be billed to their health insurance provider. Depending on their health insurance plan, they may be required to pay an out-of-pocket expense such as a co-pay, co-insurance, and/or a deductible. However, The Wright Center never denies a health service based on inability to pay, and offers a sliding fee discount program available for eligible individuals.
