The Delaware County Council and the Delaware County COVID-19 Task Force are partnering with municipalities throughout the county to launch the Pop-Up COVID-19 Vaccination Program.

Beginning on Monday, May 17, and over the next six weeks, members of the COVID-19 Task Force will hold small COVID-19 vaccination clinics in municipalities across Delaware County.

Most municipalities will host one pop-up clinic, either in the morning from 9 a.m. – 11:30 a.m., or in the afternoon from 1:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. Sites will typically include libraries, recreation centers, parks, and other public locations that are convenient to residents in the community and offer easy parking and/or easy access for pedestrians.

All vaccinations are free. No identification, health insurance or appointments are required.

Residents will be offered a choice of either the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine, or the two-dose Moderna vaccine. Second doses for those who prefer the Moderna vaccine will be scheduled for the same community approximately five weeks after the first dose, within the 28- to 42-day window recommended by the CDC.

The Pfizer vaccine will not be provided as part of this program; therefore, vaccinations will be only offered to adults ages 18 and over.

A schedule of pop-up COVID-19 vaccination clinic locations will be updated on the Delaware County website at: www.delcopa.gov/pop-ups.

The website also provides additional information about COVID-19 testing, vaccinations, assistance programs, and general guidance.

Individuals can also contact the Delaware County COVID-19 Call Center by phone at (484) 276-2100, or by email at: [email protected] for additional information about the program.
