Lamont McClure and Lehigh Valley Hospital-Coordinated Health Allentown Hospital (LVH-CHA) remind Northampton County residents that the drive-through center at 3100 Emrick Blvd. in Bethlehem Township offers both testing for COVID-19 and vaccinations. Hours of operation are Monday/Wednesday/Friday from 10:00AM – 2:00PM and Tuesday/Thursday from 2:00PM – 6:00PM. Vaccinations are by appointment only and are only available for Northampton County residents ages twelve and over. Patients can choose from all three vaccines: Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson. Pfizer and Moderna require two shots administered three weeks apart, Johnson and Johnson requires only one dose.
“Recent infection data shows the pandemic isn’t over yet,” says Lamont McClure. “I encourage everyone to get vaccinated and, if you begin showing symptoms, to get tested for COVID-19. Vaccines and testing offer us the best chance of decreasing the risks from this virus.”
To make an appointment for a vaccine at the COVID-19 testing site use one of the following options:
- Schedule at the LVHN website at LVHN.org/appointments.
- Schedule on the MyLVHN patient portal, at MyLVHN.org.
- Call 833-584-6283 (833-LVHN-CVD). The COVID-19 Vaccine Hotline is open Monday-Friday 8:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m. and Saturday-Sunday 9 a.m.-5 p.m.
A Physician’s order is not required for a COVID-19 test. The drive-through site is open to everyone, but only residents of Northampton County will have the cost of testing covered by the County if they do not have health coverage. All testing will be through HNL Lab Medicine unless insurance requires an alternate laboratory. Participants should bring a photo ID and their insurance card, if they have one, with them to the testing site.
