Vaccine Edge

Help people easily access up-to-the-minute vaccine info & book appointments.

With so many people accessing our vaccination site all at once, we needed to make sure we wouldn’t be overloaded by traffic. Thanks to Akamai’s out-of-the-box Vaccine Edge solution and despite enormous public demand, the scheduling process has been relatively smooth and uneventful — and Penn State Health is proud of the work we’ve done to help vaccinate thousands of people.
