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.

Catskill Mountain Club Hiking Challenge

Posted: 12/13/20

Catskill Mountain Club Hiking Challenge PatchDelhi is home to two hiking trails created by the Catskill Mountain Club (CMC).  The Bramley Mountain Trail accessed on Glen Burnie Road, and the Delhi Trails accessed from the parking lot at the Immanuel Lutheran Church on State Route 28.  The club has a new free patch for anyone that hikes all six trails built by the club.  These trails include Andes Rail Trail and Bullet Hole Spur, Ashokan Quarry Trail, Palmer Hill Trail, and the Shavertown Trail in addition to the two trails in Delhi.  The seventh trail in Arkville is in development and should open in 2021.  

This new patch is designed to celebrate the trails that have been built by the CMC.  They will be awarded only to those individuals who hike all of the CMC trails and submit an application showing the dates of each hike.  Download the log and application from the CMC website, catskillmountainclub.org.  Once complete, email the application to info@catskillmountainclub.org or mail it to Catskill Mountain Club, PO Box 404, Margaretville, NY 12455.

According to catskillmountainclub.org, in 2012, the CMC decided to build hiking trails with the purpose of creating trails of easy to moderate difficulty for hikers of many abilities, conveniently located near local villages.  In cooperation with partners like the NYC Department of Environmental Protection, local governments, other public entities and private landowners, they have been able to develop the trails on lands that have many beautiful and historically significant features.  

Detailed descriptions and maps of each trail can be downloaded from their website.  The maps are also available for download for smartphones using the Avenza Maps application. There is no charge for the Avenza app or the CMC trail maps, which are available individually or as a bundle.  

Happy Hiking!

Road Work Alert

Posted: 09/08/20

Please be advised that on Thursday, September 10 and Friday, September 11, weather permitting, the Town of Delhi Highway Department will oil and stone the following locations:

  • West Platner Brook
  • Peakes Brook

Please expect delays and use extra caution when traveling on these roads.  

This process covers an existing road with a layer of oil and stone that helps seal damage to a roadway and extends the life of the surface at a fraction of the cost of resurfacing. This option is an effective way to seal cracks and prevent new ones.

Please call Daren Evans, Town of Delhi Highway Superintendent at 607-746-2237 if you have any questions and keep an eye out for other news updates at townofdelhiny.com/department/highway-department.

Playground Rules:

  • Follow social distancing recommendations of 12 feet and wear a mask
  • Children under 12 should be accompanied by an adult
  • Playground equipment is designed for children ages 2-12 years old
  • The use of the playground is at your own risk.

The swings, yellow sphere, and the two large play structures are open for play.  Countless hours have been spent weeding and preparing the mulch to prepare the grounds to pass insurance inspection.  Thanks to employees in the Summer Youth Employment Program, Kaylee Lewis and Stephanie Gatos, volunteers Hope Knapp, Anna Krusinski, and Sarah Poole, Pool Advisory Committee member Will Outsen, Highway Superintendent Daren Evans, and Councilmembers Janet Tweed and Christina Viafore for all their hard work to prepare the playground.

For public safety, please wear a face covering and maintain social distance between each child not in the same household. Play equipment is not sanitized. Please remain home if you or your child feels sick, and wash your hands frequently, including before and after using play equipment.  Click here for additional guidance from the CDC regarding visiting parks and recreational facilities.

The playground has been well-loved and well-used over the past decades but is showing all that use.  A group consisting of local parents, members of the Pool Advisory Committee, and Town Council, has begun the process to develop and implement plans for a new playground.  Further updates to come!
