COVID-19 Information

 

COVID-19 Vaccine Update:

We have been receiving many inquiries about COVID-19 vaccine availability and distribution here in Lewis County. At this time, New York State determines the prioritization for vaccination. Vaccines will be distributed in phases to groups of people at increased risk of COVID-19 exposure or severe COVID-19 illness.
Phased distribution will take time. Additional phases will be listed as vaccines become more available.

Currently, vaccines can be administered to those in Phase 1a and Phase 1b. For a list of who is eligible in each these phases, please visit: https://covid19vaccine.health.ny.gov/phased-distribution-vaccine

Lewis County Public Health stands ready to vaccinate residents when the State gives us vaccine and a timeline by priority group. When we know more, we will communicate with that specific population and use all media outlets to get the message out about clinics and vaccine availability.
