Combined, these sites will have the capacity to administer 2,000 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine per day.
As of Friday, April 23rd, 60% of everyone in Chester County who is eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine has been partially or fully vaccinated.
We know that Chester County residents care about their health and the health of those around them. It is why we have been ranked as one of the healthiest counties in the state – and even the nation – for many years.
The weapons that we have to fight COVID-19 are strongest when used together, and vaccination, by far is the most essential of all the weapons. Our federal and state experts have reviewed and determined that the Johnson & Johnson vaccine is safe to use, and we ask everyone who is eligible, to be vaccinated as soon as possible, using any of the three vaccines available.
