The Pennsylvania Department of Health transitioned its vaccine provider map to the federal website, vaccines.gov, on Friday.

In a release, the department said the switch from the Pennsylvania Vaccine

Provider Map to the federal resource, called Vaccine Finder, will help ensure residents can get vaccinated close to home and with the vaccine of their preference — Moderna, Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson.
