COVID19 VACCINATIONS FOR SENIOR CITIZENS

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!


Over thirty people have currently volunteered and the exciting community-driven clinic in Cold Spring has given 637 first doses and 215-second doses through the nine clinics held in January and February.  These vaccines went to persons 65 and older.  It takes a Village; Drug World, St. Mary’s Episcopal Church, the Philipstown Volunteer Ambulance Corps, Cold Spring Police, and most important local community volunteers (RN’s and clerical workers) who have all come together to bring hope and relief for a brighter future.  Because of an unstable pipeline of doses efforts of coming to a screeching halt.

We have had to cancel at least three clinics and by now could have doubled the number of vaccines distributed.  Failing to distribute vaccines is not an option as we are serving the most vulnerable demographic; our senior citizens.  Leaders need to work together to expedite the supply of vaccines so we could restore clinic operations and protect our community. 

Please join me as I present Federal, State, and local leaders with a petition to release as much vaccine as needed as expeditiously as possible.  We cannot afford delay or the loss of one more life due to Covid19.  This community-driven effort has demonstrated we are better together and it can be accomlished. We ask all leaders to focus on distribution and expedite supply for Putnam County and our citizens.
