Oneida County COVID-19 Vaccination Update

News

Oneida County received an additional 1,300 COVID-19 vaccine doses today that will be distributed at the Mohawk Valley Community College site in Utica. That brings the total number of doses Oneida County Government has received so far to 4,300.

Appointments for vaccine distribution are required and currently booked through Jan. 15. Eligible residents should continually check www.ocgov.net for openings due to cancelations, and for the addition of new appointment dates. Visitors might experience periodic outages and error messages due to an overload of requests to the New York State Department of Health website which serves as the portal to direct appointment scheduling.

The county is currently working on expanding distribution site locations to other parts of the county and will announce when those are available to the public.

“With today’s announcement that eligibility has been expanded to those 65 and older, the demand for the vaccine is higher than ever and we have a limited supply available from New York State,” said County Executive Anthony J. Picente Jr. “We will continue to deliver every dose in our possession to our residents as quickly and efficiently as possible as we await further shipments. I urge patience as we move through this process together.”

Here are the Oneida County COVID-19 vaccination numbers as of midnight on Jan. 11.
