COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic in Philipstown on Thursday, January 14

The Putnam County Department of Health will open a COVID-19 vaccination site on Thursday, Jan. 14 at the Philipstown Recreation Center.

Only those who already have appointments Thursday will be vaccinated. To find out if you are eligible, fill out this form: https://am-i-eligible.covid19vaccine.health.ny.gov/ . Those without appointments will be turned away. The county health department is just one of the agencies in Putnam getting vaccine shipments from the state. Pharmacies, urgent cares, health centers and hospitals will also administer vaccines, but County Executive Odell has asked the state to put the county government in charge of the distribution in Putnam.

Because there is a limited supply of vaccine, the state has set rigid guidelines as to who is eligible. For Thursday’s health department POD, the department received 100 vaccines that the state designated for seniors aged 75 or older. It also received 200 vaccines designated for essential workers and divided those appointments among the police, fire companies and school districts. Healthcare workers, first responders, educators, transit workers and other essential workers are now eligible for vaccination. On Tuesday, Gov. Andrew Cuomo followed Centers for Disease Control guidance and extended the pool of eligible New Yorkers to those aged 65 and older as well as immunocompromised adults. Millions of New Yorkers are now eligible for vaccination, but the state only gets 300,000 vaccines a week from the federal government.

Again, to find out if you are eligible, fill out this form: https://am-i-eligible.covid19vaccine.health.ny.gov/

Those eligible can also call the State COVID-19 Vaccination Hotline for an appointment: 1-833-NYS-4-VAX (1-833-697-4829).
