  • Moderna has encountered shipping delays for their new bivalent vaccine. As such, we are not currently taking appointments for these boosters. We will resume appointments once shipping has returned to normal. We do not expect this to occur before October. Some pharmacies may still have stock of the Moderna booster. The Chester County Health Department has Pfizer bivalent vaccine in stock and the two brands are interchangeable as a booster. If you do cannot wait for the Moderna booster, please make an appointment to receive Pfizer instead.
  • CDC and ACIP approved the new COVID-19 boosters. The Chester County Health Department will open appointments as soon as we receive the vaccine, which is expected to occur sometime during the week of Labor Day. Please check our website and social media for any future announcements.
  • The FDA revoked the EUA for the use of the monovalent Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccines for booster administration for individuals 18 years of age and older and 12 years of age and older. Therefore, the Chester County Health Department will not be able to provide any boosters for this population until the new boosters are approved and delivered.
  • The Chester County Health Department has received a supply of Novavax COVID-19 doses and appointments are now available. The Novavax vaccine is a more traditional, protein-based vaccine, which has been widely used for decades. The 2-dose vaccine is administered 3 to 4 weeks apart. It is ONLY approved for adults who have NEVER had any COVID-19 vaccine. While Novavax has applied for use as a booster, it has not been approved yet. Booster approval my come in the Fall.
  • Walk-in appointments are unavailable at this time.
