Madison County Opens up 18 and older Will Call List
Wampsville, NY – Madison County Department of Health (MCDOH) would like those who are 18 and older to know that we are establishing a will call list for COVID-19 Vaccine appointments. The will call list will be used when there are no shows or “extra” doses of vaccine are available.
“We do not want to waste any doses. Now that there is more vaccine being allocated we want to make sure those in our community have the opportunity to get vaccinated,” said Madison County Public Health Director Eric Faisst. “Getting vaccinated is the best way to protect yourself and those you love from COVID-19. Thousands of our residents have already been vaccinated, it shows that these vaccines are safe. Sign up today.”
To be placed on the will call list either fill out this online form or contact the Madison County COVID-19 Hotline at 315.366.2770. We will contact you as soon as an appointment becomes available. Take note that if you are called or emailed it is for an appointment that day.
Madison County has vaccine appointments every day this week, the week of March 19, 2021. They are at SUNY Morrisville campus at Hamilton Hall, at the Parks and Recreation building in Chittenango, and at our new location in the Northside Shopping Center in Oneida. You must have an appointment to attend these clinics, no walk-ins will be allowed. Vaccine shots are free. All MCDOH clinic appointments can be found on the MCDOH website. If you need assistance making an appointment, please call the COVID-19 hotline at 315.366.2770.
The MCDOH would like to remind everyone that there are still cases of COVID-19 in our community. Stay home if you have symptoms of illness and limit how much you go out in public. If you do go out, please remember the 3 W’s - wear a cloth face covering, watch your social distancing and wash your hands. Even though people are getting vaccinated, COVID-19 is still in our community and we must all work together to limit the spread and protect each other.
