Delaware County Council hosted a ‘Healthy for the Holidays’ COVID-19 Vaccine Townhall on Wednesday, December 8, to help ensure that residents would have the latest COVID-19 information as travel and gatherings increase with the arrival of the holiday season.
A panel of distinguished health experts discussed the latest data regarding regional COVID-19 positivity rates and hospitalizations, boosters, variants, vaccine hesitancy, and more.
The Healthy for the Holidays COVID-19 Vaccination Townhall panelists included:
Dr. Lisa O’Mahony, Pediatrician and Delaware County Interim Physician Advisor
Dr. Patrick J. Brennan, Chief Medical Officer and Senior Vice President of University Pennsylvania Health System and Delaware County Board of Health member
Dr. Marina Barnett, Associate Professor, Widener University Center for Social Work Education
Dr. Victor Rullan, Epidemiologist for Delaware County
Delaware County residents were invited to participate through Zoom (through their desktop, laptop, tablet, or mobile device) or—for those without a fast and reliable internet connection—through a regular phone connection and were encouraged to submit questions to the panel.
