LIBERTY – An error on a state website inaccurately listed Sullivan County – specifically Public Health Services’ office in Liberty – as hosting a COVID-19 vaccination clinic today (Friday, January 15).
“Sullivan County has no vaccination clinics scheduled for (Friday),” Public Health Director Nancy McGraw said. “Area providers who have requested vaccine, as well as Public Health Services, are all awaiting further shipments of COVID-19 vaccine.”
State officials have been notified of the mistake, and Public Health staff are contacting everyone who has attempted to register for the non-existent clinic.
“We want to ensure they don’t make an unnecessary trip to our office,” McGraw said. “We don’t want to add to the public’s frustration or our already high workload, which is what will happen if we have people showing up at our doors tomorrow (Friday).”
Public Health Services is planning to mount a weekly vaccination clinic starting January 20, depending upon receipt of vaccine, followed by a series of mass COVID-19 vaccinations at SUNY Sullivan in Loch Sheldrake, which is also dependent upon receiving yet-to-be-delivered vaccine doses.
More information will be posted as soon as it is available at the county’s vaccine information page: https://sullivanny.us/Departments/Publichealth/COVIDvaccines. A recorded voice message with the latest updates is also available at 845-513-2268.
The County’s dashboard for updates on the number of active cases locally can be found at https://sullivanny.us/Departments/Publichealth/Coronavirus.
Vaccine info is also available at 1-833-NYS-4-VAX (1-833-697-4829).
