COVID-19 Vaccine Updates

The Companies continue to closely monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and vaccination updates provided by the CDC and Pennsylvania Department of Health (PADOH).  We will communicate updates via www.zippofrs.com, Communication Board postings, and company-wide emails.

​The COVID-19 vaccine is another defense in the fight against COVID-19.  We encourage all employees to strongly consider receiving the COVID-19 vaccine when they are eligible for their own benefit, along with their co-workers, family, and the community. We will periodically provide more information about the benefits of the vaccine.

​Pennsylvania’s Phase 1A (currently open) has expanded to include additional categories, including those 65 and older, and those under 65 with certain health conditions.  Those include:
