Nearly 1,000 kids ages 12 to 17 in Oneida County have received at least one vaccine dose, according to County Executive Anthony Picente’s Office.

The county has been offering Pfizer clinics for those 12 and up since mid-May.

“Vaccinating every possible person in Oneida County is the only way to end this pandemic and move this community forward,” Picente said. “A crucial part of that process is securing the health and safety of schools. I am pleased with the progress we have made in vaccinating our students so far, but we must do more. I challenge our districts and parents to increase these rates even higher, so that our schools can return to normal learning environments where our children can thrive.”

A total of 992 kids have received their first Pfizer shot so far.

Whiteboro Central School District has the most vaccinated students with 233, followed by Rome City School District with 101.

Oneida County partnered with Upstate Family Health Center to administer vaccine at the PODs conducted in the Adirondack, Camden, Holland Patent, Oriskany, Sauquoit, Westmoreland and Whitesboro school districts over the past few weeks.

About 22% of those 12 to 15 have had at least one vaccine shot in Oneida County, compared to 25.8% across the entire state.

Just under 8% of 12- to 15-year-olds are fully vaccinated in the county.
