• K-12 school employees 50 years of age and older;

The Governor’s EO #21-47 specifies that physicians can now complete FDOH Form (#DH8014-DCHP-03/2021, 64DER21-3) attesting to the medical necessity of CoViD Vaccine for their established patients.

Those patients (or their caregivers) can then take the completed form, like an old-fashioned prescription, to a participating pharmacy for their vaccination, or the physician’s office may decide to send the completed form to the pharmacy directly via fax or some other electronic method.
