Keep in mind that 7 days a week, SUNY Oneonta is set up as a New York State run COVID-19 vaccination site. This mass vaccination site is designed to give out around 1000 vaccinations per day and from all accounts is very efficient and well-run. Coming up on April 6, anyone who is 16 or older will be eligible to receive a vaccine. Once a person's eligibility begins, a vaccination appointment can be made. Health officials ask that you please do not make an appointment BEFORE being eligible.
To begin the process of making an appointment to receive a vaccine, fill out the form at am-i-eligible.covid19vaccine.health.ny.gov. Once eligibility is determined, you can choose your vaccination site and make an appointment (if available).
