Liberty, NY – Sullivan County Public Health Services today launched a page on the County’s website, specifically devoted to sharing the latest information and answering questions about the COVID-19 vaccines now being distributed.
“It’s vital that everyone in Sullivan County have accurate, up-to-date info about these important and potentially life-saving vaccines,” Public Health Director Nancy McGraw explained. “This page is designed to be easy-to-read and regularly updated – on a daily basis, if new facts emerge – so that people can gain the knowledge they need to make informed decisions about themselves and those they love.”
Located at www.sullivanny.us/Departments/Publichealth/COVIDVaccines, the page currently offers concise data about the way the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines are being distributed in New York State and locally, along with links to frequently asked questions and truthful answers to common misconceptions about the vaccines.
As New York State releases more information and expands vaccine availability to counties in the Hudson Valley, to hospitals, local health departments, federally qualified health centers, and health care provider groups, Public Health Services will add items and links to the page.
Please be aware that there is currently no waiting list to receive the vaccine – only groups included in Phase I (described on the website) are being contacted to register at this time. The vaccine is not available to the general public yet but will be in the coming months to high-risk individuals and essential workers during Phase II.
