COVID-19 Vaccines: Eligibility

All individuals ages 5+, regardless of residency status, are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccines. COVID-19 vaccines are free, regardless of health insurance, and there should be no charges or out-of-pocket costs (like copays or deductibles) regardless of who administers the vaccine. Please check our COVID-19 Vaccine Eligibility Details section below for more information regarding eligibility based on age, health considerations and vaccine type.

The Delaware County Health Department continues to host multiple COVID-19 vaccination clinics each week. Walk-ins are welcome at all clinics, but individuals are still encouraged to make an appointment in advance. Vaccinations at non-County COVID-19 vaccination clinics, such as those run by CVS, Rite Aid, etc., may require an appointment.
