Paramedics receive first doses of COVID-19 vaccine from Moderna
New Castle County Paramedics began receiving their first doses of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine. Because the Moderna vaccine can be stored at normal refrigeration temperatures (the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine requires extreme cold storage), paramedics are able to administer the vaccines without medical personnel. A second dose will be applied in four weeks to complete vaccination.
