COVID Testing and Vaccination in Venango County

Please Read: As we navigate this next phase of COVID, getting as many individuals vaccinated as possible, we’ll be sharing information about vaccine locations and processes, as we can accurately confirm. We understand that “the unknown is overwhelming,” so we want to help answer your questions.  At the same time, we are all going through our first pandemic and many questions cannot be answered.

This page will be updated as we learn more.  Until then, we will be listing information about where you can currently get a vaccine and where we anticipate you will be able to in the near future.  We have no control over the process, speed or criteria. We are simply attempting to gather information into one place, in hopes that this will be easier for you.


Pennsylvania is currently in Phase 1A.

All Pennsylvanians will be eligible to be vaccinated by April 19. Learn more about what each phase means.

Here is a link to the state’s map of vaccination locations.
