A list of vaccine providers in Putnam County can now be found at www.putnamcountyny.com/covid-19-vaccine-information. The list will be updated weekly as Putnam County receives information from NYS. A first dose vaccine POD will be scheduled for Thursday, February 11. Any individual who works in or lives in Putnam County that currently works in the following categories is eligible: Police, Fire, Schools, Daycare, Grocery, Corrections, and newly eligible individuals include: restaurant workers, restaurant delivery drivers, and for-hire vehicle drivers.
Per direction from NYS, PCDOH is not permitted to vaccinate 65+ unless you fall into one of the categories listed above. Please do not register for an appointment if you do not meet these criteria. You will be turned away at the door. Local health departments must adhere to specific vaccination groups determined by the New York State Department of Health, or we may not receive vaccines the following week.
A registration link will be shared at www.putnamcountyny.com/health and on our social media TOMORROW, February 10th. We received limited doses of vaccine this week so appointments will fill quickly. Future PODs will be scheduled as more vaccine is received.
