COHOES, N.Y. (NEWS10) – On Friday, October 15, Cohoes City School District will host a ‘Pop-Up’ clinic to encourage residents of the importance of getting the COVID vaccine.
“Vaccination equity is a critical piece to beating COVID for good, and we continue to monitor vaccination rates for zip codes across the county,” said County Executive McCoy. “Unfortunately, despite Albany County having a solid first dose vaccination rate of nearly 72%, the City of Cohoes has been lagging behind somewhat at around 63%.”
The first ‘Pop-Up’ clinic will be held in the cafeteria of the Cohoes Middle School at 7 Bevan St, in Cohoes, NY, from 8:30 a.m. to 10 a.m., followed by another ‘Pop-Up’ site at Cohoes High School’s old gymnasium at 1 Tiger Circle, Cohoes, NY., from 10 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.
Students will be required to bring a completed form with a parent or guardian signature to the vaccine clinic in order to receive a shot. Those forms can be found at the school’s main office, through ParentSquare, or download the PDF form here.
Those not able to attend the vaccination clinics at Cohoes City Schools, Albany County, will host POD’s every day of the week throughout the area, including the upcoming Fall Fest at Lawson Lake and at the Albany County Department of Health in Albany.
