Members News

All adults in Pennsylvania are now eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine, and DePietro’s Pharmacy is taking an active role in ensuring it is available and attainable within the Northeastern Pennsylvania community.

A Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine Community Clinic will be held on Sunday, April 18, 2021 from 10am to 2pm at the Greater Scranton YMCA, 706 North Blakely Street, Dunmore. Interested parties should schedule an appointment online at or call 570-209-7440.

The DePietro’s Pharmacy team has collectively administered over 2,000 vaccines to date, and any eligible individual — whether they are a customer or not — is invited to make an appointment at this clinic. Vaccines will be delivered without any fees, charges or additional requirements. Appointments are required, and walk-ins cannot be accommodated.

Tom DePietro, owner of DePietro’s Pharmacy stated, “Our team works nonstop — not just for our customers, but for the entire community. We’ve been vocal advocates to ‘flip the script,’ change the way people think about healthcare, and elevate the role of independent pharmacies in the state’s vaccination strategy. Our team is incredibly eager to do our part this coming Sunday in partnership with the Greater Scranton YMCA.”

Trish Fisher, President and CEO, Greater Scranton YMCA added, “DePietro’s Pharmacy continues to show such support to our region. This upcoming effort is another demonstration of their commitment to public health and wellbeing and aligns so well with the mission of the Y. We look forward to welcoming the community into the YMCA this Sunday, where vaccines will be administered in an efficient, safe and comfortable setting.”

The Moderna Vaccine requires two doses for optimal protection against COVID-19. For those who receive the first dose on Sunday, April 18, the second dose appointment will be automatically scheduled. The DePietro’s Pharmacy team will provide all participants in this vaccine clinic with appropriate second dose details.
