Individuals age 16 and older are now eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

PLEASE NOTE: ONLY Pfizer vaccine is approved for 16- and 17-year-olds. DBCH does not typically receive Pfizer vaccine from NYS. Pfizer brand vaccines are generally available at the State-run mass vaccination sites. Check the State's website for appointments.

Thank you for your patience as we continue to vaccinate residents. Please continue to be vigilant with coronavirus safety measures – wearing a face mask, frequent hand washing and physical distancing – to stop the spread of COVID-19.
