NYS is currently in Phase 1A and 1B of their vaccine administration plan. Healthcare workers and other eligible individuals in Phase 1A and 1B (detailed below) can get vaccinated by reaching out to their healthcare provider or pharmacy or by registering for a clinic through one of the links below. These clinics are organized and staffed through a partnership between Schuyler County Public Health and Schuyler Hospital. Please note: individuals 75 and older are encouraged to reach out to their healthcare provider or pharmacy to receive their first dose of COVID-19 vaccine. Please be patient as their office may still be awaiting their first shipment of vaccine from NYS.
Eligibility will continue to expand as more vaccine becomes available and we will continue to provide updates through our website and social media as new phases begin and further clinics are scheduled. All individuals currently eligible are encouraged to get vaccinated as soon as possible.
“Vaccination is currently underway for individuals in Phase 1A and 1B and we are prepared to start rolling out this vaccine to further community members as the state announces the start of future phases and we receive additional doses of vaccine from the state,” shared Schuyler County Public Health Director Deborah Minor. “Please register and get vaccinated as soon as you are eligible – getting the vaccine will help keep you, your family, and our community safe and help us all return to normal sooner.”
“In Schuyler County we are extremely fortunate to have a strong partner in Schuyler Hospital and Cayuga Medical Center. This collaborative effort will help to ensure an efficient and effective distribution of this life-saving vaccine” stated Schuyler County Administrator Tim O’Hearn.
“Schuyler Hospital is honored to work alongside Schuyler County and Schuyler County Public Health to ensure our community receives COVID-19 Vaccinations as soon as possible. We see this partnership as our proverbial light at the end of the tunnel and are excited to be a part of the solution,” Rebecca Gould, Schuyler Hospital President said.
“I understand people have concerns that they may miss their vaccine or that they need to get their name on a wait list – please rest assured that we will do everything we can to make sure you know when and where the vaccine will be available to you,” reassured Director Minor. “Please be patient and stay tuned to the local news and our website and social media for updates.”
“The Public Health and Medical communities are confident that this vaccine is safe and effective,” shared Director Minor. “While the process to develop these vaccines may seem fast, they were built on years of thorough research and work addressing other types of coronaviruses. All of the typical steps and safety measures were followed during its development and every study, every phase, and every trial was reviewed by the FDA and safety boards of medical experts. The speed of development was due to the sharing of research and massive collaboration on a scale never attempted before.”
Individuals should only register if they meet the current eligibility criteria. Find out if you are eligible by view the table below or by clicking here. There are a limited number of appointment slots available, and they may fill up quickly. We encourage people who are eligible to register - if slots fill up, more will be opened in coming weeks to continue distribution to eligible populations.
The following dates and times have been set for the Schuyler County Vaccination Clinics for Phase 1A and 1B. Please make sure you bring the required documentation to your appointment.
Open to 1A and 1B
Please expect to wait 15 minutes after your vaccination. Individuals who are currently on isolation or quarantine are not eligible to be vaccinated.
There is no cost or co-pay for the vaccine. Bring photo ID and proof that you are Phase 1A, 1B eligible for vaccination. Proof could be an employee ID card, a letter from your employer or affiliated organization, or a pay stub. If you have health insurance, you may be asked for that information, but it is not required. Please wear clothing that will allow vaccinators access to your shoulder.
