Who Can Get a Vaccine

New York State is currently distributing COVID-19 vaccines, as part of its phased plan, to high-risk priority population groups. Learn more about who is currently eligible on the State’s website.

You can also check your eligibility on the State’s “Am I Eligible?” applicationThe application will ask for information such as your name, where you live, and what you do for a living. If you are in a priority group currently eligible for vaccination, the site will show you the location of nearby health care providers who can give you the vaccine.

 

PLEASE NOTE: 

  • The New York State site currently incorrectly list the Dutchess County Department of Behavioral & Community Health, 85 Civic Center Plaza, Poughkeepsie as a vaccination location. This is not correct, there are no vaccinations occurring at that site. If you are eligible, please select another location on the State site or call our Coronavirus Information Line at 845-486-3555 for specific details.

Where to Get a Vaccine

Dutchess County Government has established initial Point of Dispensing (POD) locations throughout the county to vaccinate eligible individuals by appointment only based on vaccine allocation provided by New York State. YOU MUST HAVE AN APPOINTMENT TO BE VACCINATED AT THESE SITES. Registered individuals should be prepared to show identification (driver’s license, pay stub, work ID) to verify eligibility for Phase 1a and 1b classification.

 

Initial POD Locations:

PLEASE NOTE: Appointments for these dates are FULL. More appointments will be made available as more vaccine is received from the state. Current vaccine supply is very limited and Governor Cuomo announced that distribution to Phase 1a and 1b is expected to take 14 weeks based on current projected vaccine availability. Eligible residents should anticipate it may be several weeks before they can get an appointment as demand far exceeds supply.

For specific locations, please visit the website.

 

Other Vaccination Sites:

Additionally, DBCH is partnering with Northern Dutchess Hospital for vaccinations to be available at the Health Annex at Northern Dutchess Hospital located at 107 Montgomery Street in Rhinebeck.

If you are in a priority group currently eligible for vaccination, you can also use the State’s “Am I Eligible?” application, which will show you the location of other nearby health care providers who can give you the vaccine.

New York State’s COVID-19 Vaccination Hotline: 1-833-NYS-4-VAX (1-833-697-4829) open 7am-10pm, 7-days per week, for scheduling vaccination appointments for eligible residents.

 

PLEASE NOTE:

  • When you receive your appointment confirmation email from the State’s scheduling system, please be careful and DO NOT click the cancellation link at the bottom of the email, unless you need to cancel your appointment. Clicking the link WILL cancel your vaccine appointment and, due to demand, that time slot will likely be taken by someone else before the error can be fixed.
