“Today’s announcement means that more Delawareans who want to be vaccinated will have the chance to find a shot,” Governor John Carney said Tuesday. “All three of these vaccines are extremely safe, and extremely effective against serious illness, hospitalization, and death. I’d urge all Delawareans to take the first shot you’re offered. That’s how we’ll beat this virus, and get back to spending more time with friends and family.”
