A drive-thru vaccination event at the Dover DMV left Delawareans stunned after many were inoculated who aren’t currently eligible.
The screening and vetting process was a failure on Saturday after some were administered the vaccine but did not fall into the current essential healthcare, first responder, and long-term care facility categories.
Now the Delaware Division of Public Health is vowing that screening will be “tightened” moving forward to ensure that only those who are eligible receive the vaccine.
The State has faced challenges in distributing the vaccine ahead of its plan for start phase 1B by the end of the month, which will include senior citizens over the age of 65.
Moving forward public health officials vow to implement a more thorough screening process.
