VACCINE ELIGIBILITY AND WAITING LISTS
New York State opened Covid-19 vaccine eligibility to individuals age 65 or older in February. In response to the overwhelming need, the Allegany County Office of the Aging (OFA) created a waiting list of older adults interested in the Covid-19 vaccine.
The Office for the Aging and the Allegany Department of Health have collaborated to make sure the older adults of Allegany County have access to the vaccine as it becomes available in our community. If you have not yet signed up to be on the Office for the Aging waiting list for the COVID-19 vaccine and would like to do so, you can register on the www.alleganyco.com website. This waiting list is for those age 65 or over at this time. If you do not have access to the internet, you can contact the
Allegany County Office for the Aging at 585-268-9390 for assistance.
The Office for the Aging and the Allegany Department of Health use this centralized waiting list to help register individuals for vaccine at locally owned pharmacies, hospitals, and clinics. As older adults become vaccinated, it is imperative that we remove their names from the waiting list in order to serve other older adults that are awaiting vaccine as efficiently as possible.
The Office for the Aging and the Department of Health are asking that anyone who has received the COVID-19 vaccine from other locations to please call the Office for that Aging at 585-268-9390 or the Department of Health at 585-268-9250 Option #4 to remove your name from the list. Working together as a community is a key element in getting everyone served as the vaccine becomes more readily available in our community.
