Delaware County Government is one of several vaccine providers in the County. The County is working with all COVID-19 vaccine partners including hospitals, care homes, pharmacies, and eventually doctors’ offices and urgent cares, to get the vaccine out as quickly as possible. The shortage of vaccine supply nationwide continues to be a hurdle.

The County encourages those in Phase 1A to look to other vaccine providers in addition to the County. The County is just one of several providers being sent vaccine supply from the state. There are limited appointments right now due to the extremely limited vaccine supply nationwide. Some providers are scheduling into the spring.
