J&J vaccines arrive in Delaware in limited supply


PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) -- The first Johnson & Johnson doses arrived in Delaware on Tuesday. Gov. John Carney says this is all they’re going to get until at least April.

"It’s only 8,000 doses," he said. "And to be clear, they’ve made it clear to us we won’t get any more doses this month."

He said 5,000 of those doses will be used for state-run targeted clinics at the DMV in Delaware City and at Seaford High School, both taking place this weekend.

"5,000 of the 8,000 will go to bring down more of that wait list and then we’ll use the other 3,000 for other ways that we’re getting vaccine out for communities in our state."

State health officials say those shots aren’t going to a specific demographic, just to people currently eligible and on the wait list.

Carney says the state will continue to get more doses of the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines in the meantime.
