Looking to get the Vaccine? Individuals who fit in the criteria outlined for phases 1A and 1B are eligible to be vaccinated as availability allows at specific sites. The New York State Department of Health has directed each COVID vaccine provider to vaccinate a specific group of eligible people:

  • Healthcare providers eligible during Phase 1A can be vaccinated through a hospital, Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC), or at a NYS vaccination site.
  • Individuals who are 65 years of age or older can be vaccinated through a pharmacy, some healthcare providers, or at a NYS vaccination site.
  • Essential workers can be vaccinated at local health departments, or at a NYS vaccination site. A complete list of these essential workers can be found here.
  • People with certain medical conditions can be vaccinated at local health departments, or at a NYS vaccination site. A list of qualifying medical conditions can be found here.

VACCINE APPOINTMENT AVAILABILITY:

Currently, PCDOH is vaccinating specific eligible people per NYS guidelines as availability allows. First and second dose vaccine clinics will continue to be scheduled.

There are currently no clinics scheduled. Future clinics will be scheduled as more vaccine is received.

Stay tuned- DOH will share the registration link here and on the HELTH department's social media once a clinic is scheduled.

Actual appointment availability may vary week-to-week based on an effort by NYS to ensure equitable distribution.

NYS vaccination sites may have changing availability. To check for appointments at a NYS vaccination site, please click here or visit https://am-i-eligible.covid19vaccine.health.ny.gov/

When a Putnam County DOH Point of Distribution clinic (POD) is scheduled, the link will be shared on this website and social media as appropriate.

The health department is made aware of vaccine allotment and assignments from NYS on a weekly basis. As such, Putnam will be scheduling Point of Distribution clinics less than 1 week in advance for the first dose.
