Vaccine information from the Allegheny County Health Department:

The Allegheny County Health Department continues to follow the phases set forth at the federal and state level to complete as many of Phase 1 vaccinations as quickly as possible. Our region has a higher than average number of people who fall into Phase 1A just because we are home to so many health systems and related practices. The department has been managing requests from those entities since late December. As of this morning, there are still 2,269 organizations representing approximately 57,500 employees which are in Phase 1A awaiting vaccination.

The allocation of vaccines from the Federal government are fluctuating each week, and the County has been unable to receive larger allocations to this point, which is also increasing the time it is taking to get through Phase 1A.

The County is asking for your patience. Talk with your healthcare provider about whether you are a candidate for vaccine. Continue wearing a mask, washing your hands, and physical distancing. And, please, avoid social gatherings, even small gatherings, which can spread COVID-19.

As more information and vaccine becomes available to the County, they will make announcements of each phase and provide detail on how you can receive your vaccination once your phase is reached.

Mt. Lebanon and Dormont residents in need of help as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic can get assistance from Neighborhood Aid, a newly organized group of municipal and borough staff and volunteers. 

A call to 412-253-4104, weekdays from 9 to 5, or a visit to neighborhoodaid.org will connect residents with a customer service representative versed in the vast array of available services, including help with obtaining food and medication, financial assistance, business resources and general information. Volunteers also are available for errands for those who cannot or should not leave their homes to get urgently needed supplies. 

The service is free, although residents are expected to pay for any purchases requested. The service will continue as long as the need exists.

In a meeting with Mt. Lebanon emergency medical services professionals today, we learned that medics are seeing patients who are waiting too long to call an ambulance for critical medical issues because they are concerned with catching COVID-19 at the hospital. Kaitlin Shotsberger, St. Clair Hospital’s executive director of quality care and management, says patients should absolutely call 9-1-1 if they are having a medical emergency and that the hospital is taking steps to ensure COVID-19 patients are separated from others having medical issues.

She also noted the hospital’s triage line, 412-942-2600, is available weekdays, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., to help and direct patients who feel they might have the disease. People who suspect they have COVID-19 should not report to the hospital without calling their personal physician, hospital triage or 9-1-1 first.

The Mt. Lebanon police and fire departments shared detailed information about current practice and some changes to usual procedures during the COVID-19 outbreak. In order to keep the community and our first responders safe, please follow these directions until further notice:

1. For emergency calls, where a person’s personal safety or property are immediately endangered, call 9-1-1 right away. Officers will continue to promptly respond to the scene in a manner appropriate to the emergency. Always call 9-1-1 to report emergency situations.

2. For reports of previous crimes, suspicious behavior (not currently occurring), information requests, general complaints and similar needs, please call 9-1-1. The dispatcher will provide the details to an officer who will screen the call to determine the appropriate response. For circumstances that may not require a face-to-face interaction, an officer will call the complainant by phone to see if the request for police assistance or information can be handled by phone.

3. We strongly discourage walk-in complaints at the Public Safety Center. As a precaution, the Public Safety Center has been locked down to exclude visitors and other non-essential personnel. If it is necessary to visit the Public Safety Center to meet with a police officer or firefighter, please follow the instructions posted at the rear entrance to the facility.

4. To request a copy of a police report, please call our records department at 412-343-4143, Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m.

5. To request a copy of a Pennsylvania State Reportable Crash Report, please visit: http://www.crashdocs.org/. All reports for Mt. Lebanon reportable crashes, which involve an injury or vehicle that requires a tow, are available for download at this website.

6. Fingerprinting services, child safety seat installations and public safety center tours are suspended indefinitely. If you need to be fingerprinted, find an authorized "IdentoGO" location at https://www.identogo.com/

7. For drivers who were previously issued a warning notice by an MLPD officer and need to show proof that the item was corrected, please respond to the rear parking lot of the Public Safety Center and call 9-1-1. Remain in the parking lot, in your car and an officer will respond to assist you.

8. If you need to speak with a firefighter for a non-emergency reason, call 412-343-3402.
