Melissa C. Lyon, CPH, Director of Delaware County’s historic first Health Department toured the Keystone First Wellness and Opportunity Center in Chester on Jan. 26 to examine the County’s efforts administering the COVID-19 vaccine to local residents.
During the visit, Lyon was given a tour of the facility which offers testing and vaccinations for the County. Since opening, more than 13,000 vaccines have been given to area residents at the Keystone First Wellness Center by members of the Delaware County Reserve Medical Corps assisted by Keystone staff.
“Residents are so excited to finally have a County Health Department and I share in their enthusiasm,” said Delaware County Health Department Director, Melissa Lyon. “There is a great deal of work to get done and there are fundamental priorities that we have to put into place. My team and I are excited to get started!”
Lyon will tour other medical facilities across the county in the coming weeks.
