General COVID-19 Vaccine Update - March 2, 2021
At this time, per the New York State Department of Health, the Westchester County Department of Health must prioritize essential workers in the 1b category for vaccination. We are working directly with the agencies that employ these individuals to arrange for vaccination of these workers. When appointments are available for the general public, we will post registration information here. Please be advised that pharmacies receive vaccine allocation for and are to prioritize individuals that are 65+. New York State mass vaccination sites receive allocation for and are to also prioritize 65+ and essential workers in the 1b category.

Please note that the Westchester County Center Vaccination Clinic site in White Plains is run by New York State. If you have an appointment scheduled at the Westchester County Center, you will need to check with New York State COVID-19 Vaccination Hotline 1-833-NYS-4-VAX (1-833-697-4829)

COVID-19 Contact Tracing
If you have tested positive for COVID-19, or have been identified as a contact, you will get a call from “NYS Contact Tracing” (518-387-9993). Because the disease can be transmitted without symptoms, speaking with people who test positive and notifying people about a possible exposure is critical to stop the spread. So, if you get a call from “NYS Contact Tracing” (518-387-9993), please answer the phone so we can keep NY and Westchester moving forward and stop the spread of COVID-19. Learn more about how Contact Tracing works and how to become a Contact Tracing Team Member.
