Harrisburg - Acting Secretary of Health Keara Klinepeter recently provided an update on the commonwealth’s response to the global COVID-19 pandemic, and highlighted preparations being made to continue protecting public health, as the commonwealth transitions toward the endemic stage of COVID-19.
“Pennsylvania continues to address the evolving challenges created by the global COVID-19 pandemic,” Klinepeter said during a news conference today. “Over the past year, tens of millions of vaccinations and booster doses were administered to save lives and mitigate the spread of disease. COVID-19 isn’t going away. But Pennsylvania is well-positioned with the tools, knowledge, and resources to prioritize prevention in everyday life and manage outbreaks when they occur.”
