Oneida County is partnering with Upstate Family Health Center to provide 500 Johnson & Johnson vaccines to those who are homebound or live in residential facilities.
Any Oneida County resident 18 and older who is homebound due to a disability or mobility issue is eligible.
The vaccines will be provided on Friday, March 19. Nurses from Upstate Family Health Center and vaccinators from Oneida County Health Department will administer the doses.
“As we work around the clock to vaccinate everyone possible in Oneida County, we most also seek out and protect our vulnerable residents who do not have the means to access all of the options we have provided,” said Oneida County Executive Anthony Picente. “Thankfully, with partners like Upstate Family Health Center, we can take our doses right to our homebound residents and ensure they are safeguarded as well.”
Appointments are required, and can be made by calling 315-798-5439.
