As a subsidiary of Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN), Populytics is in the unique position to give employers timely health information and assistance. Through our employer services teams, we support business owners with everything from COVID-19 vaccinations to mental health and wellness.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently authorized the Pfizer-BioNTech bivalent booster for children as young as 5, to be given at least two months following completion of a primary series or prior booster. The federal agencies also authorized the Moderna bivalent COVID-19 booster for children as young as 6, though the Moderna bivalent booster is not provided for those under 18 at LVHN’s COVID-19 vaccination clinics.
Scheduling initial COVID-19 shots or boosters is required at LVHN COVID-19 vaccination clinics in Hazleton, Pottsville, East Stroudsburg, Whitehall, and Lower Nazareth Township.
Scheduling can be completed through MyLVHN, our patient portal at MyLVHN.org, with the MyLVHN app, or by calling the COVID-19 hotline at 833-584-6283 (833-LVHN-CVD). The hotline is open Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m.

COVID-19 Return to Work Evaluations and Examination. This exam evaluates employees or other individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19 to determine if it is safe for them to return to work or school.
COVID-19 Diagnostic Testing. The PCR test or “swab test” is provided to asymptomatic employees to determine current infection status. It’s appropriate as part of an overall protocol for return to work, pre-employment screening, or high-exposure-risk jobs.
COVID-19 Antibody Testing. FDA-approved serological testing determines the presence of antibodies, which indicates whether individuals have had COVID-19. Presence of antibodies can mean they are less likely to spread the virus or contract it. This test is appropriate as part of an overall protocol for individuals who will be working in a high-exposure-risk area.
Onsite Temperature & Symptom Screening. Using non-contact infrared thermometers, our team performs accurate temperature checks, as one symptom of COVID-19 can be an elevated body temperature. Screening also includes basic questions based on CDC guidelines that will help determine potential cases beyond the temperature alone.
Medical Policy Consultation. Companies and school districts can retain an occupational medicine certified physician for consultative services related to COVID-19 workplace/school policy development.
Medical Director Service. An occupational medicine certified physician provides ongoing consultation and direction regarding company/school medical needs and policy. This service is available in a variety of models based on the specific needs of the company or organization.
