MEDIA, PA — Delaware County Council and the Delaware County COVID-19 Task Force’s Pop-Up COVID-19 Vaccination Program is continuing its successful run through municipalities throughout the County, holding small community vaccination clinics at parks, libraries, fire stations, community centers, and municipal buildings.

To date, the program has held clinics at 27 locations, at municipality-selected sites convenient to residents with easy parking and/or pedestrian access.

The program’s fourth week will offer clinics in Bethel, Concord, Chadds Ford, Chester Heights, Edgmont, Media, Middletown Township, Newtown Township, and Thornbury.

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.
