St. Clair Hospital gets new vaccine shipment

PITTSBURGH — Officials with St. Clair Hospital were able to start rescheduling patients as soon as they found they were getting another shipment of COVID-19 vaccines.

“I’m 86 so I thought I would be right up in the front there but nobody had it,” said Leo Tross.

The hospital went three weeks without receiving the vaccines needed for first-dose appointments. Now that the shipment has come in, they’re able to set up clinics in the South Hills for senior citizens.

“We are very relieved that we are finally able to get it,” said chief medical officer Alan Yeasted.
