CVIM is currently vaccinating for COVID-19 in accordance with the State Department of Health Plan. VACCINATIONS ARE BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. NO WALK-INS ARE ACCEPTED.
To be considered for a future appointment at a vaccination clinic, sign up on our waiting list. When we reach your name on this list, you will be contacted by phone to schedule an appointment.
We recommend you sign up on waiting lists at vaccination sites in addition to CVIM. Check the Pennsylvania Department of Health website for a listing of injection sites and other important information about the vaccine.
CVIM is proud to have stayed open to care for our patients during the COVID-19 pandemic. We continue to remain agile to meet the changing needs of our community and have adapted our procedures to follow recommendations of the CDC and Government officials. During this especially difficult time, we hope our supporters will continue to do their part by making financial contributions or gift-in-kind donations such as PPE supplies to help your uninsured friends and neighbors of Centre County.
Testing of our patients for Corona Virus is not currently available at CVIM. The recommendation for people with mild respiratory illness is to remain at home unless they are having difficulty breathing or serious symptoms requiring possible hospitalization.
PATIENTS WHO HAVE HAD A FEVER, COUGH, ANY RESPIRATORY SYMPTOMS, HAVE TRAVELED INTERNATIONALLY OR DOMESTICALLY IN THE LAST 14 DAYS, OR HAVE HAD POSSIBLE CONTACT WITH A PERSON WITH CONFIRMED COVID-19, MUST RESCHEDULE ANY CVIM APPOINTMENTS THEY HAVE MADE.

Friends & Family Campaign
December 1 through December 31
For the last 17 years, because of their belief in what we do, Lance and Ellen Shaner, have matched $50,000 for individual donations to the Friends and Family campaign. Lance was inspired to make their initial gift by a six-year-old CVIM patient who asked his friends for donations to CVIM instead of birthday gifts.
100% of funds raised in this campaign remain in Centre County to provide medical and dental care, case management, and medication assistance for CVIM patients.
THANK YOU TO ALL OF OUR DONORS FOR MAKING THE 2020 CAMPAIGN A SUCCESS!!
Marathoners for Medicine
February 6 - December 31
The Marathoners for Medicine began their 2020 season with a kickoff celebration at CVIM on Thursday, February 6th. While a few of our Marathoners were able to run their races early in the year, in-person races were canceled because of the COVID-19 pandemic so that many team members chose ways to run their distances virtually. Thank you to all who participated and donated to Marathoners for Medicine in 2020.
