The US is currently experiencing the worst outbreak of measles in more than 25 years. Un-vaccinated children can often attend school where they may spread the disease to other un-vaccinated students, some of whom cannot receive vaccines due to medical conditions. Given current outbreaks in New York, a new law passed June 13th, 2019 that will help protect the public amid this ongoing outbreak.

At this time we are not providing COVID-19 vaccinations as the Health Department. However we are working on community-based clinics to increase access to COVID-19 vaccine. When clinics are established, please find information about dates, times and places on our COVID-19 Clinics page.
We can bill Medicaid, Medicare Part B, Child Health Plus, Excellus Blue Cross Blue Shield or Fidelis Managed Care. Present your card at your appointment to receive services at no charge. If you are not covered by these health insurances we will provide you a receipt for service that you may submit to your insurance company to seek reimbursement.
This Department charges an at-cost rate plus administration fee —our rate/fees are adjusted down using a sliding fee scale based on household income.
We can now accept payment with GovPayNet – so you can swipe your debit or credit card here at our office or pay online.
Please call our office at 518-873-3500 if you have questions about immunizations, fees or payment.
