As of last week, the Allegany County Department of Health is again able to vaccinate those age 65 and over. We would like residents to know the Allegany County waiting list for those age 65 and over is down to the last 100-200 individuals
We are looking for residents age 65 and over, interested in the COVID-19 vaccine, to add to this waiting list. The Office for the Aging and the Department of Health use this centralized waiting list to help register individuals for vaccine at locally owned pharmacies, hospitals, and clinics.
In response to an overwhelming need, the Allegany County Office of the Aging (OFA) created this 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 or the Allegany County Department of Health at 585-268-9250 press #4 for assistance.
