State of Delaware Announces Plans to Administer 2nd Doses of COVID-19 Vaccine

Governor John Carney, the Delaware Division of Public Health (DPH), and the Delaware Emergency Management Agency (DEMA) have announced updates to the State of Delaware’s COVID-19 vaccination program, with a focus on administering second doses for Delawareans who received first doses at state-operated vaccination events in January. The following opportunities will be available:

  • Later this week the State of Delaware will open registration for second dose appointments for 3,800 people who received their first dose at the Dover DMV on January 16, 17 or 18 or Salesianum School on January 18. These events from February 15-19 will be operated by Curative at Delaware Technical Community College (DTCC) campuses in Georgetown, Dover, and Wilmington. Registration will be done directly with Curative and individuals will be required to show proof of their first dose vaccination date when they arrive on site. 

  • The State of Delaware has requested that the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) stand up a vaccination site at Dover International Speedway for multiple days beginning as early as February 20. The FEMA site would be dedicated to vaccinating people who received their first dose at the Dover DMV January 16, 17 or 18; Salesianum School on January 18; the Delaware City DMV January 22, 23 or 24; or the Georgetown DMV January 23 or 24. Individuals will be required to show proof of their first dose vaccination date. 

Here is the direct link to second dose information on the State website page.

For those who qualify for Phase 1A or 1B, registration to receive the COVID-19 vaccine is de.gov/getmyvaccine

Important DelVAX Reporting Reminder

Governor John Carney issued the Sixth Modification to his Omnibus State of Emergency Declaration last week, which among other things requires Delaware vaccination providers to report to the Delaware Immunization Information System (DelVAX) complete demographic information within 24 hours of administering a vaccine.
 
The modification also requires health care providers, pharmacies and other entities that provide vaccinations to offer the shots free of charge, though insurance information may be collected.

Enrolled vaccination providers must follow eligibility criteria in Delaware's COVID-19 vaccination program, as defined by the Division of Public Health (DPH). Failure to comply with data reporting requirements may result in fines for providers and reductions in vaccine allocation. Read more.
