May 18 vaccine clinic now open to those 12 years old and up

There are two upcoming vaccination clinics in Schoharie County at the county office building on May 18, one of which is available to those 12 years of age and older. With the recent federal authorization for the vaccine to be administered to 12 to 15-year-olds, county health officials are now opening one of the clinics to that age group, in addition to those 16 years of age and older.

Please follow the links below to register.

First Clinic (For ages 18 and older)

This clinic offers the Johnson and Johnson vaccine. This is a single dose vaccine offered to members of the Schoharie Central School as well as the community at large. It is available to persons age 18 and older. This clinic will be held at the Schoharie County Office Building from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.

It is open to students age 12 and older. Parental accompaniment is preferred for all students. All recipients of this vaccine who are under the age of 18 must have the provided consent signed by a parent/guardian.

In the event that a person between 12 and 17 years of age is not accompanied by a parent/guardian, the parent/guardian who signed the consent must be available by phone, and able to be reached at that phone number, at the approximate time of the minor’s appointment to confirm eligibility. A clinic staff member will call prior to vaccine administration.

The recipient must also be available to receive the second dose 3 weeks later at the same time and location on Tuesday, June 8.

An electronic registration and a signed consent is required for all recipients age 12 to 17. Only the electronic registration is required for those age 18 and older.
