Cortland County Sets Up Vaccination Clinic for Seniors
Cortland County and Kinney Drugs are working with the Homer Central School District to host a vaccination clinic March 28th at the Homer High School.
The clinic will be specifically for Cortland County residents age 65 and older. There will be 1,100 doses given.
The Cortland County Area Agency on Aging says securing an appointment for seniors has often been too burdensome for those not technologically savvy and who don’t have a family member or caregiver who can help them through the process and assist them in getting to clinics that are often outside of the community. They say bringing the vaccinations closer will help ensure no senior who wants a shot is left behind.
Cortland County is recruiting volunteers to help with staffing for the March 28 clinic. Anyone interested in volunteering should call (607) 745-0072
Seniors wanting to register for the vaccination clinic should call (607) 756-3415 between 8:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. by March 16. Seniors who are already on Cortland County’s 65 and older list will be contacted by the county.
