WATERTOWN, NY — The Jefferson County Public Health Service (JCPHS) thanks Jefferson Community College (JCC) for the valuable assistance with planning and implementing the Covid-19 vaccination clinics held at JCC. Through collaboration and ingenuity, the partnership of the college with the healthcare system has enabled 16,421 Covid-19 vaccine doses to be administered.
During this unprecedented time, JCC stepped up to provide space, staff and
resources to our community. As JCPHS moves operations to specific areas of the
community, JCPHS thanks the entire JCC community-administrative staff, support
staff, instructors, and students-for being on the front-line to ensure our community
members received vaccine.
“Thanks to JCC, healthcare partners, and volunteers, we have achieved our mission. JCC’s commitment was integral to the success of the operation. Our goal now is to work in collaboration with our local communities, to meet people where they are and to reduce remaining barriers to getting the COVID vaccine.” said Ginger Hall, Director of Public Health.
While scheduled 2nd dose clinics will still be held at JCC, JCPHS will be holding 1st dose clinics at various locations and times to ensure that all who want to receive a vaccine are able to do so without barriers. The following clinics are currently scheduled:
Tuesday, May 4th 4:00pm – 6:00pm at Jefferson County Public Health Service
Thursday, May 6th 10:00am – 2:00pm at Redwood Volunteer Fire Department
Tuesday, May 11th 4:00pm – 7:00pm at Great Bend Fire Department (walk-ins
