William Way COVID-19 Clinic

The April 6 clinic is among the first pop-up vaccination events specifically geared toward queer and trans Philadelphians.

William Way first opened slots last week to people who receive regular services at the community center. Though it’s been posting on social media and sharing via email, the center is still working to fill its 200 appointments — so if you’re queer or trans and eligible under Phase 1A or 1B, there might be a space for you.

There’s no centralized link to schedule, but you can call the center at 267-225-7660 or send an email to vaccine@waygay.org. Make sure you do it in advance, since the William Way clinic is not a walk-up operation.

We know that LGBTQ folks, particularly trans folks, experience a lot of barriers trying to get culturally affirming care, and there’s reason to suggest the vaccine experience would be similar.
