Liberty, NY – Sullivan County Public Health Services is offering free weekly vaccination clinics for MMR – the vaccine that provides protection for measles, mumps and rubella – throughout the summer to the public, both for children and adults who are unsure of their immunity status or have had only one MMR.
Pre-registration is required to attend an upcoming clinic at www.health.ny.gov/gotoclinic/53. (Please register ONLY for a clinic marked as “SCPHS MMR Clinic.”). The clinics will run every Wednesday, starting on July 3, from 2-5 p.m. at Public Health’s Gladys Olmsted Building, 50 Community Lane, Liberty.
These clinics are separate from regular monthly immunization clinics for other childhood vaccines, which are held the 2nd Wednesday of each month from 5-7 p.m. Routine childhood vaccines will not be offered at the weekly MMR clinics.
Please talk to your healthcare provider before registering for a clinic if you have personal health concerns that might preclude you from receiving the MMR vaccine. For more information, call Sullivan County Public Health Services at 845-292-5910.
For general questions and concerns about the measles, the New York State Department of Health maintains a Measles Information Line: (888) 364-4837.
