Delaware County Hosts ‘Healthy for the Holidays’ COVID-19 Vaccine Townhall

Posted on December 7, 2021

Panel of health experts to field questions and discuss the latest COVID-19 information

Delaware County Council is hosting a ‘Healthy for the Holidays’ COVID-19 Vaccine Townhall on Wednesday, December 8, at 7:00 p.m. to help ensure that residents have the latest COVID-19 information as we move into the holiday season and residents gather with loved ones and travel.


A panel of distinguished health experts will discuss the latest data regarding regional COVID-19 positivity rates and hospitalizations, boosters, variants, vaccine hesitancy, and more.

The Healthy for the Holidays COVID-19 Vaccination Townhall panelists include:

  • Dr. Lisa O’Mahony, Pediatrician and Delaware County Interim Physician Advisor
  • Dr. Patrick J. Brennan, Chief Medical Officer and Senior Vice President of University Pennsylvania Health System and Delaware County Board of Health member
  • Dr. Maria Barrett, Associate Professor, Widener University Center for Social Work Education
  • Dr. Victor Rullan, Epidemiologist for Delaware County


Delaware County residents can participate through Zoom (through their desktop, laptop, tablet, or mobile device) or—for those without a fast and reliable internet connection—through a regular phone connection. Residents will have the ability to submit questions during the Townhall, and the panel will answer as many questions during the Townhall as time allows. We anticipate that the Townhall will run between one and one-and-a-half hours.

Residents must pre-register to participate in the Townhall via Zoom by visiting delcopa.gov/healthyholidays and filling out the brief sign-up form. Individuals who prefer to participate by phone can dial 1-855-756-7520, Conference # 77914 at 7:00 p.m. on December 8 and will be connected.
