About The Data

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.

About This Section

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.

Phase 1A (Active)

Start Date: 12/15/2020

About This Phase

Health care personnel, Emergency Medical Services agencies, and long-term care staff and residents will receive the vaccine first.

Why

Health care settings in general, and long-term care facility (LTCF) settings in particular, can be high-risk locations for SARS-CoV-2 exposure and transmission. Health care personnel are defined as paid and unpaid persons serving in health care settings who have the potential for direct or indirect exposure to patients or infectious materials. Early protection of health care personnel is critical to preserve capacity to care for patients with COVID-19 or other illnesses. LTCF residents are defined as adults who reside in facilities that provide a range of services, including medical and personal care, to persons who are unable to live independently. LTCF residents, because of their age, high rates of underlying medical conditions, and congregate living situation, are at high risk for infection and severe illness from COVID-19.
