About this section
How data is provided
The source of the number of doses delivered to Delaware is the Federal government. Healthcare providers administering COVID vaccine are required to report vaccinations through the State's DelVAX Program. DelVAX is the source of the number of vaccine doses administered.
Delays in data reporting
More doses have been administered than are showing up on the vaccine tracker. This is because of healthcare provider delays in reporting doses administered to DelVAX. Doses remaining, therefore, is likely to be lower than is shown. Of the doses which have not been administered some are in the DPH warehouse and are being distributed daily to enrolled providers and pharmacies and/or will be used for mass vaccination events. The remainder are with our health care partners.
Important notes about vaccination data
Delivery information is based upon reports from the federal tracking database Tiberius. "Doses Delivered as Part of Federal Provider Programs" includes doses delivered to pharmacies participating in the federal pharmacy programs (i.e. Pharmacy Partnership for Long-Term Care Program and Federal Retail Pharmacy Program) as well as doses delivered to Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) funded through the Health Resources and Services Administration's (HRSA) Health Center COVID-19 Vaccine Program.
As of 11/2/2021, "Doses Remaining" are no longer being reported because dose sizes can now vary (e.g. a booster dose of Moderna is half the volume of the dose used in the primary series).
