The mass vaccination center at Park City mall will close permanently on Wednesday, June 30, as planned, the Vaccinate Lancaster Coalition confirmed Tuesday.

That means that recipients of the Pfizer vaccine who get their first shots on or after this coming Thursday will need to get their second doses elsewhere.

They will be able to do so through any of the four health care systems in the coalition: Penn Medicine Lancaster General Health, Penn State Health, UPMC or WellSpan Health.

Patients can also choose to receive the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, which is a single shot.

The center has been operating since March 10, and on Monday administered its 225,000th dose.

It has a capacity of up to 6,000 shots per day. However, demand has stalled: Last week, the county's providers collectively administered fewer than 3,000 first doses, according to state data.

The center currently operates from 8 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Patients can schedule an appointment online or by phone at 717-588-1020, or walk in.
