COVID-19 vaccinations available Wednesday

COVID-19 vaccinations available Wednesday

05/04/2021 

Spots are still open for a campus vaccination clinic on Wednesday, May 5. A first dose of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine will be available from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. May 5 at the Park Center Alumni Ice Arena.  

The clinic, operated by the Cortland County Health Department and Guthrie Cortland Medical Center, is open to any New York State resident who is 18 or older. Anyone interested can register online.  

Recent changes to state and federal guidelines allow people to get their second dose of vaccine at a different location. That means students can get their first dose on campus Wednesday and, if they choose, get their second dose at home four weeks from the initial shot. .  

Students can look up where they can get a second dose of Moderna vaccine in their hometown on vaccines.gov. Most pharmacies should have Moderna available.  

We encourage our students to be vaccinated. The American College Health Association recommends comprehensive vaccination as the most effective way for higher education institutions to safely return to the traditional college experience in the fall. Currently, only 34% of people age 18 to 25 have been vaccinated against COVID-19 statewide.

Although things are improving, the pandemic is not over and Cortland County continues to see new cases of COVID-19 daily. Please continue to wear masks, avoid large crowds and participate in testing.
