Thank you for pre-registering with the Chester County Health Department to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. We are working with all COVID-19 vaccine partners – hospitals, care homes, pharmacies, and eventually doctors’ offices and urgent cares – to get the vaccine out as quickly as possible. We are requesting maximum doses of the vaccine from the PA Department of Health on a weekly basis, and the numbers we have requested, compared with the number of doses we are receiving, are noted in the chart below.
Here is an update on the vaccine program in Chester County, as of Friday, January 29, 2021:
Vaccinating Phase 1A
The Chester County Health Department is currently administering the vaccine to individuals in Phase 1A. At the current level of vaccine doses the Chester County Health Department is receiving from the State, it is estimated that 4,000 people in Phase 1A will receive the vaccine each week. As delivery of the vaccine doses increases, this estimate will be revised.
The chart below indicates the estimated number of people in each phase, and the number that have, to date, been vaccinated.
Notification of Available Appointments
As appointments open up for the COVID-19 vaccine, you will be notified of the opportunity to book an appointment, with a personalized link for booking. The link for scheduling your vaccine will be sent separately.
An appointment for your second vaccine will be scheduled at the time of receiving your first vaccine.
Chester County Health Department Vaccine Sites
Based on the amount of vaccine received, we are currently holding two COVID-19 vaccine clinics – one at the Government Services Center in West Chester, and one at Kennett Square Fire Company’s Red Clay Room. Additional vaccine sites have been secured throughout the county, and will be opened as vaccine dose amounts sent to the Chester County Health Department increase.
Currently Administering Moderna Vaccine
Chester County is currently administering the Moderna vaccine, which is approved for use in individuals age 18 and older. Chester County cannot administer the vaccine to anyone ages 16-17 at this time.
