Following the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practice (ACIP) recommendation of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for those ages 12-15, Delaware County government is now offering the Pfizer vaccine at select walk-in and drive-thru clinic locations, beginning on Thursday, May 13.
The Pfizer vaccine will be available—without the need for an appointment—to everyone ages 12 and over at Springfield Hospital (190 Sproul Rd., Springfield, PA) on Thursday, May 13, from 10:00 a.m.- 4:00 p.m. and on Friday, May 14, from 10:00 a.m.- 4:00 p.m.
Additional dates and times to receive the Pfizer vaccine will be listed at delcopa.gov/vax.
Appointments are not necessary but are encouraged to allow for a more efficient process and a shorter wait time for residents.
“The COVID-19 vaccine continues to prove itself as the greatest weapon that we have in fighting this virus, so we welcome the news that the FDA has expanded the emergency use authorization of the Pfizer vaccine to include those age 12 to 15,” said Jeanne Franklin, Director of the Chester County Health Department.
In addition to the County’s Pfizer vaccine locations, health officials expect Pfizer to soon be available for 12 to 15-year-olds at local pharmacies and pediatrician offices throughout Delaware County.
Vaccines are free and no ID or insurance is needed. Parents or guardians must provide consent for 12 to 15-year-olds who are receiving the Pfizer vaccine from Delaware County Government and must plan to be present during the vaccination.
In addition to the Pfizer vaccine, Delaware County continues to administer the Johnson & Johnson and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines, both available for anyone ages 18 and over.
