65+ COVID Vaccine Info

(current as of 1/15/21)

 

Aging & Youth does NOT provide or schedule vaccines

Public Health is only permitted by the state to vaccinate professionals (teachers, first responders, essential employees, etc.) and is NOT able to vaccinate 65+ or to schedule vaccinations for 65+.

Pharmacies – many pharmacies ARE able to vaccinate people.  All vaccinations must be scheduled – no walk-ins will be seen.  Currently, all local pharmacies are scheduled out and have no available appointments.  You can check with your pharmacy for updates.

Medical Providers

None of the local Doctors’ offices are directly involved in scheduling or administering the vaccine.  Your doctor can discuss if the vaccine is appropriate for you based on any medical concerns you have, but they cannot schedule you or give you the vaccine.

URMC – If you are a patient at a U of R practice, they will be calling people starting 1/17/21 in random order to schedule vaccines.

RRH – If you are a patient at a Rochester Regional practice, they have already begun calling people to schedule a vaccine appointment. (Caller ID will be 585-922-xxxx)

Finger Lakes Health – They are adding their vaccine schedule to the NYS website.  Any scheduling for vaccines must be done through that website/app.

Https://am-i-eligible.covid19vaccine.health.ny.gov – This is the official NYS website that allows people to ensure they are currently eligible and to schedule the vaccine at nearby clinics (like Finger Lakes Health).

Patience is the word of the day!

There may not currently be any local appointments for the vaccine.  You may have to wait.  You may have to travel a short way to get it.  Calling Aging and Youth or Public Health or even the doctor’s office will NOT get you an appointment.  Please be patient.
