WASHINGTON – Saturday, Dec. 19, U.S. Senators Tom Carper and Chris Coons and U.S. Representative Lisa Blunt Rochester (all D-Del.) underscored their confidence in the remarkable work of scientists and public servants across the United States and around the world by taking the first of two doses of a COVID-19 vaccine. 

In a video released by the Delaware Division of Public Health (DPH), the Delaware congressional delegation says, “It’s great news that we have multiple vaccines that are safe, effective, and critical to beating this pandemic. We are so grateful to the scientists and researchers around the globe who have made this day possible. And to all the health care heroes who have put their own lives at risk to care for others.”

“To reach the other side of this pandemic, we’re going to need everyone to learn the facts about the vaccine and get vaccinated too. It’s about protecting yourself, your loved ones, and everyone in our state. But don’t forget, even as vaccines begin to be distributed, we can’t let our guard down. Keep washing your hands, wearing a mask, maintaining social distance and limiting interactions with others. If we all do, we’ll all get to the other side safely together”

DPH is regularly updating their website with information about the COVID-19 vaccine at https://coronavirus.delaware.gov/vaccine/.
