DOVER (May 11, 2021) - The Delaware Division of Public Health (DPH) has opened four standalone COVID-19 vaccination clinics this week, which will serve for the next several months as an option for people to be vaccinated with or without an appointment, including those in the newly eligible 12-and-older age group starting today.
Appointments can be made at these four new clinics - as well as at Public Health clinics located in state service centers -- by calling 1-833-643-1715, and they will handle walk-in traffic as well. These clinics use Pfizer vaccine and can immediately begin vaccinating the 12+ age group approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration on Monday. Written parental consent is required to vaccinate individuals younger than 18 years old, however the parent is not required to be on site with the child during the vaccination.
The vaccination clinics will schedule appointments or accept walk-ins Monday through Friday between 8:30 and 11:30 a.m. and 1:15 and 4 p.m.

"As we look to increase our vaccinated population, especially to reach young people who will be going back to college and school at the end of summer, these new vaccination-only clinics have the capacity to administer thousands of vaccines a week," DPH Director Dr. Karyl Rattay said. "These standing vaccination clinics, along with our public health clinics at state service centers, Curative sites, medical providers, pharmacies and community events will all be a part of increasing Delawareans' protection against COVID-19 substantially in the next several months."
