Vaccination Clinic Success

This week, we partnered with the South Colonie schools to host a vaccination clinic at the middle school. We are pleased to inform you that 224 individuals were vaccinated, with an overwhelming majority (82%) representing those 12-15 years of age.

Those who received the first dose this week will come back to get the second dose on Tuesday, June 22 from 4:30-7:30pm.
