Along with hosting a COVID-19 testing center, the Westchester County Center is opening this Wednesday, January 12 to pediatric vaccinations and booster shots. The Westchester County Department of Health is running the vaccination and booster clinic, with testing occurring at different times than vaccine and booster clinics and will be in a different section of the County Center. Additionally, the facility will be thoroughly cleaned in between testing and vaccination and booster times.
Westchester County Executive George Latimer said: “We have the space; we have it set up as a medical facility so offering testing, as well as vaccinations and boosters, makes sense and it is what the people of this County need right now. I want to thank the Westchester County Health Department for getting these clinics up and running. I encourage everyone to get vaccinated, get your children vaccinated and get boosted. Getting COVID vaccinated, as opposed to not vaccinated, can be the difference between requiring hospitalization and just having mild symptoms.”
