Appointments available for April 29 vaccine clinic
Tomorrow, April 29, the Tompkins County Health Department and Cayuga Health System will conduct a COVID-19 vaccine clinic at the Ithaca Mall (40 Catherwood Road). During the clinic, CHS will administer Johnson & Johnson, a single-dose vaccine.
The Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine has been deemed by the CDC and FDA to be safe and effective, and was recently re-approved for use by the CDC, FDA and New York state following extremely rare reports of blood clots in adult women younger than 50 years old. For more information on the vaccine's safety, please visit the TCHD website.
Anyone 18 years or older is eligible to participate. Please register for an appointment at the state health department website and be sure to bring your photo identification and insurance card, if you have one, to your appointment.
