Kingston, NY – Ulster County Executive Pat Ryan announced that those attending the Ulster County Fair will be able to get vaccinated on-site. Through a partnership with New York State, the Ulster County Department of Health is making vaccines available to all fair attendees, over the age of 12.
“With the national rise in cases due to the Delta variant, Ulster County is redoubling our efforts to make vaccines accessible,” County Executive Pat Ryan said. “Vaccines are safe, effective, and will allow us to bring back a sense of normalcy to our community. I encourage all of our residents to get vaccinated.”
The Ulster County Point of Dispensing (POD) at the Ulster County Fair will be open on August 6th and 7th from 11am to 7pm. Located near the First Aid booth between the UC Sheriff’s Office ORACLE vehicle and Dive Tank. Second dose appointments will be scheduled at the first dose appointment. Appointments are available at VaccinateUlster.com, and walk-ins are also welcome.
The Pfizer vaccine is approved for people ages 12+. For anyone under the age of 18, a parent or legal guardian must accompany and give consent for vaccination. Documentation is not required. Any necessary forms will be available at the POD in English and in Spanish, and a Spanish interpreter will also be on site.
These locations will be key to the county’s continued efforts to ensure all residents can receive the coronavirus vaccine conveniently, safely, and equitably. In addition, the County is continuing to coordinate closely with other key partners — including municipal governments, not-for-profit organizations, and religious institutions — to add additional vaccination capacity throughout the county.
