[ARCHIVED] COVID-19 Vaccine Information

Image of Coronavirus

NYS is currently in Phase 1A of their vaccine administration plan. See the table below to learn which individuals are part of 1A.  People in Phase 1A are being vaccinated by hospitals, federally qualified health centers, and by local health departments – including Schuyler County Public Health. It is anticipated that it may take the month of January to finish vaccinating people in Phase 1A and we hope that vaccination of individuals in Phase 1B is able to start by early February. We will provide updates, including who is eligible and where to get vaccinated, as things progress and the vaccine becomes more widely available. Please note - NYSDOH may update the Phases and who is included in each at any time.

Find out if you are eligible by viewing the table below or by visiting https://am-i-eligible.covid19vaccine.health.ny.gov/.
