KINGSTON – This week Ulster County brought its COVID-19 vaccination efforts directly to the people by holding four municipal opportunities – in New Paltz, Rosendale, Gardiner, and Rochester.

They were so successful that County Executive Patrick Ryan said they will plan other local sites going forward.

“We are really seeing all of the communities step up and find new ways to make it easier to get this life-saving vaccine to our residents that are wanting to get it. We are going to continue to do that and also continue to innovate with new ideas and approaches to make it easier,” he said.

Over 52 percent of Ulster County residents have been vaccinated.

The county will continue with its local centers with one at Esopus Town Hall on Tuesday, the LGBTQ Center in Kingston on Wednesday, and at Shawangunk Town Hall a week from Monday,
