The MLO Minute: By Jillian Zacks, Esq. —
On January 19, 2021, Pennsylvania’s COVID-19 Interim Vaccination Plan V. 5 included an updated definition of “health care personnel.” The updated definition of health care personnel includes individuals providing services for the elderly or persons with disabilities in a Pennsylvania Department of Human Services (DHS) program. This includes unpaid caregivers. Health care personnel are included in the Phase 1A group to receive a vaccination. Click here to read the full letter from DHS. If you are an unpaid caregiver, you can print out a copy of this letter to bring to your vaccination site. If you have any questions, or if we can be of assistance, do not hesitate to reach out to our firm by calling 610-648-9300 or by contacting us here.
