COVID Vaccination Information

Posted: 01/13/21

According to Delaware County Public Health, vaccination is underway for priority population groups. It will take about 14 weeks to vaccinate the population eligible in phases 1a and 1b.

For an updated list of who is eligible to receive the COVID vaccine please go to www.covid19vaccine.health.ny.gov. From this site check your eligibility, find vaccination locations near you, and schedule an appointment. Or call the New York State COVID-19 vaccination hotline at 1-833-697-4829.

For individuals 65 and older, local assistance with scheduling can be obtained by calling Delaware County Office for the Aging at 607-832-5750.

Please note that due to the federal government supply distribution process it may take 12 or more weeks before an appointment is available to you.  Please remember the people and facilities providing vaccinations are the same people that have been working throughout this entire pandemic. They are being tasked with additional jobs and maintaining the responsibility of operations. Please be patient, you will be vaccinated.

Here's what you need to do if you want to be vaccinated:

Step 1: Determine eligibility and schedule an appointment. First, you should complete the Am I Eligible? App to check their eligibility and find vaccination locations near you where you can schedule an appointment, or call the New York State COVID-19 Vaccination Hotline. The COVID-19 Vaccination Hotline is open 7 AM - 10 PM, 7 days a week, for scheduling vaccination appointments for eligible New Yorkers: 1-833-NYS-4-VAX (1-833-697-4829). Note that due to limited supply from the federal government, it may be 12 or more weeks before an appointment is available to you.  

Step 2: Complete the Vaccine Form. Once and only once you have a confirmed appointment, you must complete the New York State COVID-19 Vaccine Form. This form can be completed online and you will receive a submission ID, or can be completed at your vaccination site. (We encourage New Yorkers to complete the form ahead of time.)

Step 3: Bring proof of eligibility to your appointment. When you go to your vaccination site for your appointment, you must bring proof of eligibility. This may include an employee ID card, a letter from an employer or affiliated organization, or a pay stub, depending on the specific priority status. If you are eligible due to age, you should bring a form of ID (like a Driver's License or passport) that includes your date of birth.

Step 4: Schedule your second appointment in-person at your vaccination site. You will be able to schedule an appointment to get your second shot at your vaccination site, in-person, right after getting your first shot. Remember: Both vaccines require two doses for effectiveness.
