Editor’s Note: will seek to keep you up to date on the availability of vaccinations against COVID-19.  We will strive to update our information at noon daily.

As of noon today, the only New York State special sites  still accepting appointments from citizens 65 and over is Plattsburgh and Potsdam.

According to the NYS website, “The Federal Government determines how much vaccine New York State receives and has given New York approximately 250,000 vaccines per week for over 7 million people who are eligible – as a result supply is very limited. Vaccines are available at pharmacies, hospitals and through local health departments – please contact the provider of your choice to schedule a vaccine appointment.”

Through the “Am I Eligible” app, eligible individuals can register to receive the vaccine at facilities where supplies are available. CLICK HERE FOR APPOINTMENT

After two doses of the Pfizer and Moderna inoculations, there is 94 percent efficacy of both, according to a Bassett press conference held yesterday at noon. The longevity of this immunity is not yet known.

Going forward, there will be at least five ways to get the COVID-19 inoculation.  In addition to state sites, the other four are:
