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.
Over the past two weeks, the COVID-19 Task Force has held clinics at the Tinicum Township Fire Company, the Prospect Park Masonic Lodge (#578), the Sellers Library, the Darby Township Community Center, the Ridley Park Borough Hall and over a dozen other locations—hand-picked by local municipalities—convenient to residents with easy parking and/or easy pedestrian access.
The program’s third week will offer clinics in Trainer, Marcus Hook, Lower Chichester, Upper Chichester, Upland, Brookhaven, Nether Providence (Garden City), Nether Providence (South Media).
Going forward, 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.
