SUNY Cortland to serve as vaccination center

SUNY Cortland has partnered with Cortland County and Guthrie Cortland Medical Center to host a large-scale COVID-19 vaccination center to serve eligible populations in the region.

The center, located in SUNY Cortland’s Park Center Alumni Ice Arena, could open as early as next week. It is needed to meet the increased demand for vaccinations. New York state recently widened its eligibility list to include people many essential workers and people over the age of 65.  

“As a member of this special community, SUNY Cortland is always eager to help,” SUNY Cortland President Erik J. Bitterbaum said. “During times like these, all segments of the community must collaborate and work together.”

Cortland County Legislative Chairman Paul Heider agreed, “Working alongside the university and the hospital allows the County Health Department to support a more robust vaccination effort in our community.”

The number of individuals who can be vaccinated continues to be based on the doses made available to the county and Guthrie each week by New York state. SUNY Cortland’s Student Health Services will work with Cortland County Health Department and Guthrie staff to administer the vaccine.

Additional information regarding the times, location, and appointments for the upcoming clinics will be announced on the Cortland County website and through local news media. Essential workers and residents can find out if they are currently eligible for the vaccine online.
