Ulster County COVID-19 vaccination sites have performed 52,103 vaccines, with 29.2% of residents now with at least one vaccine dose
Ulster County will administer over 4,000 vaccines this week
KINGSTON, N.Y. – County Executive Pat Ryan today announced that Ulster County has performed over 50,000 COVID-19 vaccinations. With 52,103 vaccinations performed, almost 30% (29.2%) of residents have received at least one COVID-19 dose. 21,071 residents have completed the COVID-19 vaccine series. This week, Ulster County has been allocated 4,170 vaccines across all providers.
“This is a significant milestone in our pandemic response as we continue to ramp up our vaccination efforts,” County Executive Pat Ryan said. “Ensuring that we can vaccinate all of our residents in a safe, rapid, and equitable way remains my top priority as we continue to work to increase access to this life-saving vaccine. While the increase in vaccines is welcome news, we can not forget that we are still not through this. I am encouraging all residents to continue to wear masks, socially distance, and take necessary precautions to stop the spread.”
Last week, Ulster County shifted its main vaccination location from the Kate Walton Field House to the Hudson Valley Mall. The move allows for up to 2,500 doses per day to be administered and 300 parking spots for residents. Residents looking for an appointment can join the waiting list by visiting vaccinateulster.com or call 845-443-8888.
Additionally, in response to a request from County Executive Ryan to open a state-site in Ulster County, New York State opened a state-run mass vaccination site at the Ulster County Fairgrounds in the Town of New Paltz last Friday. Residents looking for an appointment can visit am-i-eligible.covid19vaccine.health.ny.gov or call 1-833-NYS-4-VAX.
The expanded locations will be key to the county’s efforts to ensure all residents can receive the coronavirus vaccine rapidly, safely, and equitably. In addition, the County is continuing to coordinate closely with other key partners — including hospitals, health care facilities, pharmacies, and providers — to add additional vaccination capacity throughout the county.
