COVID-19 Vaccine Update

With the state’s expansion of COVID-19 vaccine eligibility this morning, many residents in Phase 1B have inquired about where they can get their vaccination. The state will open a statewide vaccination hotline (1-833-697-4829) at 4 p.m. today where eligible residents can schedule a vaccination appointment.

COVID-19 Vaccine UpdateWe continue to ask residents for patience, as the governor announced last week vaccinating all New Yorkers in Phase 1A and 1B will likely take 14 weeks, but no one will miss their shot.

We encourage you to check http://www.dutchessny.gov/covidvaccine for updates on available appointments at the County-operated PODs, when more vaccine is made available to Dutchess County. There you can access the state’s “Am I Eligible?” online tool, which will list local providers offering the vaccine, when it becomes available.

You can also sign up to receive emails about Coronavirus Information & Vaccine Updates by using the blue button at www.dutchessny.gov/Departments/DBCH/2019-Novel-Coronavirus.htm

There are no appointments currently available at the points of dispensing (PODs) established by Dutchess County Government due the limited number of doses made available to the County from New York State.
