Around Christmas, Ben Nachum applied to the Philadelphia Department of Public Health to offer COVID-19 vaccine doses at his North Philadelphia pharmacy.

More than a month later, he has yet to hear back. In mid-January, he submitted his information into the state’s application process but hasn’t heard from them either.

”There are five pharmacies around me,” said Nachum, owner of Patriot Pharmacy. “We could easily vaccinate this whole neighborhood if we had the vaccine.”
