Chester County Department of Aging Announcement
COVID-19 Vaccination Information
Chester County, through the Health Department, the hospitals and other healthcare providers, are actively receiving COVID-19 vaccine and administering it as quickly as possible. Vaccines are safe, effective, and a key strategy to protect you and the people around you from serious illness. The goal is for everyone to easily get vaccinated against COVID-19 as soon as large enough quantities are available. Vaccine availability will initially be limited and therefore must be distributed in a phased approach. Click here to read more
