Drop-In Center Hosts Vaccine Clinic, Serves 32
Posted on July 23, 2021
OCO Crisis and Development Services recently hosted a COVID vaccine clinic at its Drop-In-Center at Hillside Commons in Oswego. Members of the Oswego Health Department were on hand to administer COVID vaccine doses to area residents. Twenty-six people received the one dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine and an additional 6 received their second dose of the Pfizer vaccine.
“This was the second clinic that we have hosted,” said OCO Health Education Services Coordinator Ellen Lazarek. “I’m pleased that we are collaborating with the Health Department to connect people to vaccines and help provide locations to do so. OCO has a long history of working together with the Health Department and we are glad to have the opportunity to assist them in meeting community needs.”
Oswego County Health Department is hosting weekly COVID Vaccine clinics on Wednesdays through August. The next remote free vaccination clinic will be July 29 at the Sandy Creek Fire Department, 6026 South Main St., Sandy Creek from 4:00 – 7:30 pm. The vaccine is free and no insurance is necessary.
