Yesterday, Cortland County health officials administered all 200 doses of the Moderna vaccine allotted for this week.
Like the rest of the region, they’re now forced to wait for another shipment by the state on Wednesday of next week.
It’s a frustrating process for county residents and employees who are struggling to get signed up for their immunity.
A mass clinic at SUNY Cortland is capable of doing 500 shots per day if the supply could keep up.
The county expects to run the facility for at least eight weeks, but all appointments are currently booked and it’s unclear when they’ll be able to reopen.
That will depend on the amount of doses that arrive in next week’s allocation.
Residents are also encouraged to try pharmacies and local health care providers, but they’re experiencing much of the same with demand greatly exceeding supply.
Appointments are booked at the state-run clinic at the Syracuse Fairgrounds until mid-April.
