Closure of the COVID-19 Vaccination and Testing Site

May 24, 2024


Northampton County Executive Lamont G. McClure, in collaboration with the Northampton County Department of Community and Economic Development, Emergency Management Services, and Lehigh Valley Hospital-Coordinated Health Allentown Hospital (LVH-CHA), announces the closure of the COVID-19 vaccinations and testing sites in Northampton County.

 

The vaccination site, LVPG Internal Medicine - Pine Street (325 Pine Street, Easton, PA 18042), and associated walk-in testing centers located at Bangor ExpressCARE, Bethlehem Township ExpressCARE, and Palmer Township ExpressCARE played a pivotal role in the region's response to the pandemic which will now close on Saturday, June 1, 2024.

 

"The COVID-19 vaccine continues to be the most effective way to protect each other from severe illness and death. I extend our deepest gratitude to LVH-CHA for their unwavering dedication in providing vaccination and testing services to Northampton County residents and employees for four years," stated Executive Lamont McClure. "We will never be able to measure the number of lives that were potentially saved or the significant impact this partnership had on the thousands of County residents who utilized the testing site. I would be remiss if I did not express gratitude to the LVHN healthcare workers who administered the tests and vaccinations."

 

While the closure of the testing and vaccination site marks the end of a significant chapter in Northampton County's COVID-19 response, the County remains committed to protecting the health and safety of our residents.
