Those without internet access can call the Dutchess County Coronavirus Information Line at 845-486-3555 to hear weekly updates about vaccine availability by selecting Option 1. If you are eligible, you can then select Option 2 to be added to notification lists about appointment availability. You will will be called when an appointment is available to you.
