Mobile units to offer vaccines in underserved areas

Posted

DOVER — Starting next week, the Delaware Division of Public Health in partnership with the Delaware National Guard are launching mobile units to offer COVID-19 vaccines in underserved communities.

According to the DPH, medically trained DNG staff will offer the Pfizer vaccine (for ages 12 and older) and the J&J vaccine (for persons 18 and older). These mobile units will first visit communities with low vaccination rates in an effort to eliminate potential barriers to access, the DPH said.

The mobile units, which utilize trailers to transport the vaccine and provide vaccinations, are scheduled to visit communities in Kent and New Castle counties, and then expand to Sussex County.

Mobile units will be at The Village at McKee Branch in Dover from 10 a.m. to noon on Tuesday, June 15, along with Whatcoat Apartments from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. the same day.

On Thursday, June 17 in Dover, vaccinations will be available at Walker Woods from 10 a.m. to noon and Simon Ccircle/Hayes Circle from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.

On Friday, June 18 in Dover, mobile units will be at Park Place from 10 a.m. to noon, and General’s Greene Phase IV & Premier Village from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Mobile units are scheduled for Newark on Monday, June 14 and Wilmington on Wednesday, June 16.

Dates may be rescheduled if there is inclement weather.
