Town of New Castle COVID-19 Update: Vaccine Appointments and Help for Seniors

Vaccine Distribution

There are currently three government-operated vaccination sites in Westchester County: the Westchester County Center, Westchester Community College, and the Westchester County Health Clinic on Court Street in White Plains. Together these three sites have vaccinated 109,796 people, an increase of 21,133 people in the past week.  
Including non-government vaccinations sites (e.g., hospitals, pharmacies, FQHCs, etc.), the total number of people who have received the vaccine in Westchester County is over 150,000. This does not include the number of people vaccinated at the Yonkers Armory (data not yet available). 
The Westchester County vaccination dashboard with information on number of vaccines distributed by zip code, vaccine distribution locations, and other vaccination metrics is available here.
