Update on COVID-19 Vaccinations in Delaware County

On Thursday, Janauary 14, Delaware County issued a press release to provide updates on the COVID-19 vaccination program rollout. Some key points in the release include:

  • The Chester County Health Department, as well as many other vaccine providers, continue to vaccinate individuals in Phase 1A. The Chester County Health Department is aware of the recent announcement by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services about a shift in populations included in Phase 1B, and all vaccine doses being approved for distribution to states. The Health Department is assessing the impact of this announcement on its current approach for vaccinations and transition from Phase 1A to 1B. Delaware County and the Chester County Health Department are eager to move to Phase 1B as quickly as possible, however we must be sure we can do so without being limited by our vaccine supply.
  • Delaware County residents are urged to complete an interest survey for the COVID-19 vaccine. This survey is the best process for residents to register. 
  • Unaffiliated healthcare providers should also check with local health systems for information on the vaccine becoming available at those locations as spots open up in their health system.

Citizen Corps Volunteers

Citizen Corps of Delaware County Seeks Volunteers 
to Support COVID-19 Vaccinations

Next Online Orientation Thursday, January 14

The Citizen Corps of Delaware County (CCDC) is planning to significantly expand its volunteer base and is currently recruiting and training to meet this critical goal.  An additional 1,000 volunteers are needed to support the County’s ongoing COVID-19 vaccination efforts.While Delaware County has already begun vaccinations for the segment of the population classified as Phase 1A (which includes healthcare workers, EMS workers, medical examiners, funeral staff, and residents and staff of long-term care facilities), the effort to vaccinate all residents of the county over the next several months will require significantly greater resources.

Volunteers are required to participate in a free online orientation. Orientations are held each month. The next orientation will be held on Thursday, January 14, from 6:30 – 9:00 p.m.

Residents who are interested can register online at www.delcocitizencorps.com. Additional information, including specific dates and times of future orientations, can be found on the website.

Update on COVID-19 Vaccinations in Delaware County

Delaware County is currently administering COVID-19 vaccinations to Delaware County residents 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. 4, 4,435 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:
