Phase 1B Now Includes Residents 65 and Older
Delaware County residents are urged to complete an interest survey for the COVID-19 vaccine. The County is currently administering COVID-19 vaccinations to people who live or work in Delaware County and are in the priority Phase 1A group. This group includes healthcare workers, EMS workers, residents and staff of long-term care facilities, and medical examiner and funeral staff.
Due to the limited supply of the vaccine, healthcare workers, EMS staff, long-term care facilities, and medical examiner and funeral staff are the priority for vaccination distribution. Delaware County is committed to ensuring a safe and timely distribution of the COVID-19 vaccination and continues to work with the County’s hospitals and the Chester County Health Department to administer the vaccine as quickly as possible. As of Jan. 15, 13,336 COVID-19 vaccines were administered in the county, which is a similar rate compared to neighboring counties.
The Chester County Health Department has updated its home page and vaccine webpage to include information and links for residents to learn more about the vaccine phases and to indicate interest in receiving a vaccine.
