Westmed is committed to protecting our patients from COVID-19 and we are prepared to begin administering the vaccine, the moment it is made available to us by the New York State Department of Health. Though we anticipate becoming a distribution site in the near future, we do not currently have vaccine available at our sites.
As of Monday, January 11, 2021, the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) has entered Phase 1b and has now expanded vaccine eligibility to individuals over the age of 65 and frontline essential workers, including teachers, public transit staff, first responders, grocery store workers and corrections facilities staff. The NYSDOH has developed an online tool to help you determine if you are eligible to receive this vaccine. We strongly encourage you to use this tool and the other resources available to you on this website so that you can get the vaccine as soon as possible.
Connecticut is currently in Phase 1b of their statewide vaccine roll-out. Information on how to get access to the vaccine is available here.
Please do not call our offices with vaccine inquiries at this time, so that we may keep our lines open to patients who need immediate medical attention. If you believe you are currently eligible for the vaccine, we encourage you to visit the websites above to find a vaccine distribution center near you.
We strongly recommend you receive the vaccine as soon as you become eligible. As always, please do your part to end this pandemic, by continuing to socially distance, washing your hands and wearing your masks. Together, we can stop the spread of COVID-19.
