Vaccine Update:

Posted on 12-22-2020

  • As of today (12/21), approximately 3,500 doses of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine have been administered to Delaware health care workers.
  • On Friday (12/18), the U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued an emergency use authorization for the second COVID-19 vaccine. The action allows the Moderna vaccine to be distributed for use in individuals 18 years of age and older.
  • Delaware is expected to receive 16,700 doses of the Moderna vaccine this week, along with another 2,925 doses of the Pfizer vaccine.  
  • Most of the doses will be shipped directly to enrolled providers, including hospitals and health centers. 
  • High-risk health care, long-term care, EMS and other health care personnel are part of those eligible to receive the vaccine in the first phase of distribution.  
  • Like the Pfizer vaccine, the Moderna vaccine requires two doses, administered several weeks apart. 
  • A Delaware Vaccine Call Center has been established (see graphic). Questions can also be emailed to:
