Coronavirus Information and Resources

COVID-19 Vaccine Information

The Chester County Health Department is in the first stage (1a) of its COVID-19 vaccination plan. Click HERE to be taken to a Chester County webpage with information about the vaccine roll-out, and to register to receive additional information. Those who register will be notified when vaccines are being scheduled for their grouping.

Vaccine Availability:

The Chester County Health Department received its first shipment of COVID-19 vaccine on December 23rd. Delaware County anticipates its first shipment in January 2021. Together, we join other healthcare organizations throughout our Counties in vaccinating the first two groups within Phase 1A - frontline healthcare personnel and EMS providers. Details about how to get the COVID vaccine for these two groups will be shared with each county. At this time, we cannot provide specific details on the timing of vaccine distribution to other groups in Phase 1.

The goal is for everyone to easily get vaccinated against COVID-19 as soon as large enough quantities are available. Vaccine availability will initially be limited and therefore must be distributed in a phased approach. As more vaccine becomes available, vaccination across multiple phases can occur simultaneously.

Included in Phase 1B:
*Clergy and other essential support for houses of worship
*Corrections Staff
*County and Municipal Administration Staff
*Educators/Education Staff
*Facilities and Sanitation Staff
*Food and Agriculture Staff
*Grocery Store Staff
*Individuals caring for children or adults in early childhood and adult day programs.
*Individuals in congregate settings not otherwise specified as long-term care facilities and persons receiving home and community-based services
*Law Enforcement
*Manufacturing Staff
*Persons 65 Years and Older
*Transit Staff
*U.S. Postal Service Staff

More information for the time frame of distribution for Phase 1B will be posted at the county website linked above as it becomes available.
