DATE: January 13, 2021

ELIGIBLE GROUPS: 1a and 1b ​who live or work in Putnam County. More info here: https://covid19vaccine.health.ny.gov/phased-distribution-vaccine

VACCINE APPOINTMENT AVAILABILITY:
Putnam County has been directed by New York State to vaccinate specific groups eligible in phase 1b: P-12 teachers, police and firefighters. We have a closed POD scheduled for those individuals on Thursday. The link to register will be shared directly with the organization leader who will disseminate it to their staff.
Due to unusual circumstances, Putnam has a very small allotment this week to vaccinate those 75 and older. PCDOH is working with the Putnam County Office for Senior Resources to register individuals 75 and older for a POD on Thursday.

The health department is made aware of our vaccine allotment and assignments from NYS on a weekly basis. As such, Putnam will be scheduling PODs less than 1 week in advance for the first dose. The best place to stay up to date with vaccine announcements is our website at www.putnamcountyny.com. We are eager to vaccinate our community and thank you for your patience as the rollout continues.
