Individuals who are in Phase 1a or 1b of the New York State’s Phased Distribution Plan are eligible for COVID-19 vaccinations.
Dutchess Delivery Emails
COVID-19 vaccine remains in very limited supply and demand far exceeds supply. Governor Cuomo estimates it will take 7 months to vaccinate the current eligible groups (approximately 7 million people) based on projected supply. New York receives approximately 250,000 to 300,000 doses each week which then is distributed throughout the state.
New York State Sponsored Sites
New York State vaccination sites are open to all Phase 1a and 1b eligible individuals. Closest state sponsored sites to Dutchess County are Westchester County Center and SUNY Albany.
To find out about available appointments at these sites:
Dutchess County Department of Behavioral & Community Health
Points of Dispensing (POD) Vaccination Centers
The County has two POD locations – at the former JCPenney store at the Poughkeepsie Galleria and Dover High School. These sites are BY APPOINTMENT ONLY.
Appointments for County POD locations must be made online. Appointment availability is dependent on vaccine supply. New appointment sign-ups are opened as the County receives confirmation of vaccine supply from New York State and are posted at www.dutchessny.gov/covidvaccine.
Residents can sign up at www.dutchessny.gov/covidvaccine to receive email notification when new appointment sign-ups are opened. Appointments fill very quickly once they are posted as supply is limited.
As per NYS guidance, local health departments are to prioritize Phase 1b essential workers (such as police, fire, teachers, public transit workers).
