Saratoga County Updates Vaccination Rollout: City Center Named Vaccine Location

Saratoga County Updates Vaccination Rollout: City Center Named Vaccine Location

BALLSTON SPA — Approximately 9,600 Saratoga County residents, or 4.5% of the county’s population, have received either the first or both doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, county leaders announced Jan. 12. 

“We are ready and able to begin a large-scale vaccination program as soon as we begin receiving more doses from the State,” said Theodore Kusnierz, recently elected Saratoga County Board of Supervisors Chairman.

There are 18 PODs, or points of dispensing, identified across the county to help distribute the vaccine once it becomes more widely available to the general public. The City Center of Saratoga Springs will serve as the largest location for distributing vaccines and is appealing because of its size, proximity to a population center and ability to be secured 24/7. The other locations will be named as the county is supplied adequate amounts of vaccine. 

“We have been in the process of preparing mass vaccination facilities that will be available for use on a 24/7 basis. We must work quickly, efficiently and equitably to get all residents vaccinated, and I believe we are more than prepared to do so,” said County Supervisor Tara Gaston, chair of the Health Committee.

“Demand far outpaces our current supply, but once the supply begins to increase, we have the infrastructure in place to rapidly begin vaccinating our residents on a large scale,” said Dr. Daniel Kuhles, Commissioner of Saratoga County Public Health Services.

Vaccine eligibility regulations and guidelines are being updated on a near-daily basis. For the most recent information, go to: covid19vaccine.health.ny.gov.
