The Lackawanna County Department of Human Services administers services and engages with the older adult constituents of Lackawanna County through the Area Agency on Aging. This branch of the Human Services Department was established in 1966 to provide critical services, assessments, and protections to the residents of our community in response to the Older Americans Act of 1965. The Act continues, through its most recent reauthorization in 2020, to serve as the foundation of our mandate.
If you are a Lackawanna County resident that is 65+, call 211 to make a COVID-19 vaccine appointment or to cancel multiple COVID-19 vaccine appointments you may have already made.
Additional vaccines are coming, but in very limited supply. Please be patient. Distribution is increasing and everyone will get their vaccine, but it will just take a little time.
