COVID-19 Vaccine Information

To our valued patients,

Please do not call the office at this time for a COVID-19 vaccination appointment. We are experiencing an understandably high volume of vaccine related calls. We do not want our patients to experience further frustration during this difficult time only to learn that we still do not have any available COVID-19 vaccine. We will notify our patients as soon as NYS gives us more information on when we can expect to receive the vaccine.

COVID-19 vaccine distribution is currently being managed by New York State. Additionally, Dutchess County Government has established initial Point of Dispensing (POD) locations throughout the county to vaccinate eligible individuals by appointment only. Initial appointments at POD locations are FULL, and eligible residents should anticipate it may be several weeks before they can get an appointment. New York State's COVID-19 Vaccination Hotline: 1-833-NYS-4-VAX (1-833-697-4829) open 7am-10pm, 7 days a week is available to schedule appointments for eligible individuals.   Pharmacies such as CVS, Rite Aid and Walgreens are also approved NYS vaccination sites.

Appointments will be available at our office once vaccine is received from the state, but current vaccine supply is extremely limited. Again, we will contact our eligible patients in accordance with state recommendations. We appreciate your understanding and patience. We will keep you updated via email as to when the vaccine is available here and when you are eligible to schedule your vaccine appointment.

While vaccines are being distributed, please remain vigilant. Be sure you continue to wear masks, maintain at least 6 feet of physical distance from others, avoid large gatherings, and practice good hygiene with washing hands and sneezing or coughing into your elbow.

Sincerely, The Providers and Staff at Hudson Valley Primary Care
