Del. launches Homebound Vaccination Program

Next Steps After Fda Authorizes Covid Vaccine

WILMINGTON, Del. – The Delaware Department of Health and Social Services has announced a new toll-free number for Delawareans to request COVID-19 vaccinations for eligible seniors and people with disabilities who cannot access a vaccination location due to disability, age, or severe illness.

In the Homebound Vaccination Program, DHSS is partnering with independent pharmacies in each county to deliver the vaccinations to eligible Delawareans age 5 and older. Participating pharmacies include Ivira Pharmacy in Milford, Camden Pharmacy, Seaford Pharmacy, and Express Pharmacy in Laurel.

Starting on December 15th, all requests for a homebound vaccination or booster will be filtered through a toll free number to be assessed and scheduled. Live operators will staff the toll free line from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturdays. That number is 1-888-491-4988.
