KINGSTON – Members of the Ulster County Legislature have written to the governor confirming the county is ready to partner with the state to serve as a vaccination distribution center at the Kate Walton Field House at Kingston High School.

The county site has been operating for several weeks with the capability of safely and effectively administering up to 50,000 vaccines per month when an adequate supply of vaccines is available.

In their letter to the governor, the lawmakers noted Kingston is centrally located in the Hudson Valley, midway between Albany and New York City, and with a facility accessible by public transportation two miles from Thruway exit 19.

The nearest sites are in Albany and Westchester with neither site serving Zip Codes in the Mid-Hudson, the legislators noted.
