WOONSOCKET, R.I. – In an ongoing effort to expand access to COVID-19 vaccines and help the country move forward from the pandemic, CVS Health announced that it will begin vaccinating eligible populations on Wednesday, March 31 at two locations in Delaware.

For the locations that will begin to offer vaccinations on March 31, appointments will start to become available for booking on Tuesday, March 30, as the store receives shipments of vaccine.

Vaccines at participating CVS Pharmacy locations in Delaware will be administered to individuals meeting state criteria, as well as K-12 teachers and staff and childcare workers. Patients must register in advance at CVS.com or through the CVS Pharmacy app, and people without online access can contact CVS customer service: (800) 746-7287. Walk-in vaccinations without an appointment will not be provided.

“We’re proud to play a part in increasing access to the vaccine to as many people as possible to enable reopening efforts in the communities we serve,” said Neela Montgomery, president of CVS Pharmacy and executive vice president of CVS Health in a statement. “Feedback on every aspect of the vaccination process has been incredibly positive, from the digital experience to interacting with our team of health care professionals whose incredible efforts are helping to move us one step closer towards a healthier post-COVID world.”

There is no cost for the vaccine to patients with insurance or through the federal Health Resources and Services Administration program for uninsured patients.

Participating CVS Pharmacy locations are in Kent and New Castle counties. As more supply becomes available, the company will expand vaccine access through an increasing number of store locations and in more Delaware communities.
