SUNY Schenectady Partnering with Schenectady County To Serve as Vaccination Site



SUNY Schenectady is partnering with Schenectady County to serve as a COVID-19 vaccination site. Distribution began on Monday, Jan. 25, 2021, as the county anticipates the arrival of additional vaccines to administer to New Yorkers in both Phase 1a and 1b. These groups include doctors, nurses and health care workers, people age 65 and over who are vulnerable, first responders, teachers, public transit workers, grocery store workers, and public safety workers. At this time, the vaccinations will not be made available to the general public.

“SUNY Schenectady’s number one priority is always the safety and well-being of our campus community and our community at large,” said Dr. Steady Moono, College President. “I’m proud of the team at the College and the strong partnerships we have within the county. Collaboration is vital, especially during the pandemic. We are stronger together.”

“Locating a COVID-19 vaccination POD at SUNY Schenectady gives us ample space to grow capacity in the event our vaccine allocation increases,” said Rory Fluman, Schenectady County Manager. “We ask the public for their patience and understanding as eligibility has expanded at a faster rate than vaccine supplies.”
