When Can I Get My Vaccine?

The first New Yorkers to receive the Covid-19 vaccine, as part of the NYS Vaccination Plan, are in groupings known as 1A which is a list of priority populations. If you are a member of one of these priority populations, watch for an email from your employer or sponsoring agency on how to register for an upcoming vaccination clinic (see "Read More" below for the priority listing).

More information will be released next week for Wyoming County priority populations as guidance is issued by NYS. Visit the NYS Department of Health site for Covid-19 vaccination information at https://covid19vaccine.health.ny.gov/.
