Delaware County Council and the Delaware County COVID-19 Task Force’s recently launched Pop-Up COVID-19 Vaccination Program is continuing its successful run through municipalities throughout the County, holding small community clinics at parks, libraries, fire stations, community centers, and municipal buildings conveniently located to residents.
During the first week, members of the COVID-19 Task Force vaccinated residents at Sellers Library, 69th Street Recreation Area, the Colwyn Police Department, the Ridley Avenue Parking Lot in Sharon Hill, and a half dozen other sites—hand-picked by local municipalities—that are convenient to residents and offer easy parking and/or easy pedestrian access.
The program’s second week will offer clinics in Darby Township, Folcroft, Glenolden, Norwood, Prospect Park, Ridley Park, Tinicum, Eddystone, and Chester Township.
Over the next few weeks, members of the COVID-19 Task Force will visit each of the 49 municipalities in the County and may visit select municipalities multiple times if representatives from these communities believe that additional clinics would be beneficial.
Pop-Up Clinics are typically held in the morning from 9 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. or in the afternoon from 1:30 p.m. to 4 p.m.
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 are only offered to adults ages 18 and over.
The schedule for the Pop-Up COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic locations is available on the Delaware County website at delcopa.gov/pop-ups. The website also provides additional information about COVID-19 testing, vaccinations, assistance programs, and general guidance.
