Yesterday was the second day in a row of less than 100 active covid-19 cases in Cortland County.
That hasn’t happened since the first week of November.
Meanwhile, two vaccine clinics were announced yesterday by the County Health Department — the first was held yesterday; another will take place this Saturday from 9 am to 2 pm, both located at the SUNY Cortland ice arena.
Eligible 1B individuals with an appointment will get their first and second doses of immunity.
Those who were postponed last week are rescheduled for this Saturday’s clinic.
County officials say weekly allocations are beginning to increase. Both clinics are capable of vaccinating up to 500 people.
Tompkins County got 900 doses this week for grocery workers, school staff, seniors and others with comorbidities.
Another 100 doses were allocated for 1A healthcare personnel.
The TC Health Department has created a new online registry for eligible residents to sign up and be notified when doses become available for them.
Caregivers, family members, or friends can complete this on behalf of someone who doesn’t have internet access.
It can also be done over the phone by calling 2-1-1 (877-211-8667).
TCHD will use this registry to distribute links for eligible groups to register for available vaccine appointments.
