Liberty, NY – As part of their community outreach, Sullivan County Public Health Services’ COVID-19 vaccination team will be out and about this week offering doses in Callicoon and Monticello, along with the usual spot in Liberty.
“These vaccines are safe, effective and widely available, so unless your doctor tells you otherwise, there’s no reason to wait any longer in protecting yourself against coronavirus,” encourages Public Health Director Nancy McGraw. “Our team is particularly adept at getting people through the vaccination process very quickly and without pain, so we welcome anyone who’d like to get vaccinated!”
