Del. health officials: numerous ineligible residents received COVID-19 vaccine at weekend event

Getting Covid From The Vaccine

DOVER, Del. – State officials say Delaware residents who are not currently eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine received it at a mass vaccination event on Saturday, attended by Governor John Carney.

The Delaware Division of Public Health said that screening would be “tightened” for vaccination events on Sunday and Monday.

We’re told it is unclear how those not in the Phase 1A group of healthcare workers and long-term care residents and staff were allowed to get the vaccine over the weekend.

Officials previously said Phase 1B, targeting front-line essential workers and people 65 and over, was expected to begin later this month.
