“Our goal is to vaccinate as many Delawareans as possible, as quickly and equitably as possible,” Gov. John Carney said. “These second dose events will temporarily reduce our ability to expand access to first doses of the COVID-19 vaccine. But we are making significant progress in vaccinating vulnerable 65+ Delawareans and front-line health care workers. That will help limit spread of COVID-19 and serious illness among our most vulnerable populations.”
