COVID-19 Vaccination Resource Center

Ulster County Department of Health has a COVID-19 vaccine Point of Dispensing (POD) at the former Best Buy in the Hudson Valley Mall. Use the links below to register for an appointment.

Things to Know Before You Go:

  • Bring your CDC vaccine card to your second, additional, or booster dose appointment.
  • The bivalent booster is available in Pfizer and Moderna. Due to its high demand and limited quantities, appointments are strongly recommended. Walk-ins are available but not guaranteed.
  • Pediatric vaccine appointments are available by appointment or walk in. Patients must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. (Please note that if you are a court appointed legal guardian, you must bring legal guardianship paperwork to each vaccination appointment.)
  • If you have any questions regarding vaccination clinics, including homebound vaccinations or accessibility concerns, please contact Ulster County Department of Health at 845-340-3150.

There are four approved or authorized vaccines in the United States.

  • Pfizer is approved for 6 months and over
  • Moderna is approved for 6 months and over
  • Johnson & Johnson/Janssen is approved for ages 18+ (CDC recommends that the J&J/Janssen COVID-19 vaccine only be considered in certain situations, due to safety concerns.)
  • Novavax is approved for ages 12+

CDC recommends that people ages 5 years and older receive one updated (bivalent) booster if it has been at least 2 months since their last COVID-19 vaccine dose, whether that was:

  • Their final primary series dose, or
  • An original (monovalent) booster

People who have received more than one original (monovalent) booster are also recommended to get an updated (bivalent) booster. The updated (bivalent) boosters protect against both the original virus that causes COVID-19 and the Omicron variants.

You can obtain the updated booster at the same time as other vaccines, including your flu shot. To find a vaccination site, please visit: https://www.vaccines.gov/ or by calling 1-800-232-0233.

Answers to FAQs:

  • Second-dose appointments are automatically scheduled for those vaccines which require two doses, however, second doses may also be administered as a separate walk-in or appointment at the Best Buy POD.
  • If the link takes you to a screen that says “No Appointments Available,” it means that all appointments have been filled. More appointments will be posted as they become available. Please check back.
  • The link works best with the Google Chrome browser.
  • On the final page of the registration, it will say “print this page,” “register” or “done.” Clicking that will confirm the appointment is done. You should receive a confirmation email and/or text when the appointment has been successfully made.

The COVID-19 vaccine is also widely available at multiple convenient locations throughout the County (see the links below for locations).
