COVID-19 VACCINE

The vaccine landscape in NYS is changing week-to-week. As a local health department, we submit weekly requests for vaccine supplies, but we are unable confirm the quantity we’ll receive until the vaccine arrives at the beginning of each week. This makes scheduling POD clinics challenging, as we don’t want to make appointments that we’ll have to cancel. To date, vaccines have been allocated to counties based on a number of factors, including the percentage of the population in eligible categories and availability of providers to distribute vaccine.

Weather events impacted large portions of the country delayed shipments last week (2/15/2021). Once we confirm receipt of vaccines, we will publicly announce registration links for available local appointments.
