Residents of Warren and Hamilton counties who are 60 and older can now get on a waiting list for COVID-19 vaccines at local clinics in three different ways.
Warren/Hamilton Counties Office for the Aging/NY Connects and Warren County Health Services have been working with senior citizens since mid-January to help them access vaccine and advise them of vaccine availability.
That process has now expanded with online, email and telephone options to sign up for the waiting list, so that seniors can be contacted as vaccine supplies increase.
“While we do not operate the vaccine clinics ourselves, we wanted to be a resource for our seniors, especially those that do not have access to the internet,” explained Dee Park, Director of Warren/Hamilton Counties Office for the Aging/NY Connects. “This past week, vaccination clinics have become more readily available and we wanted to make our population aware of our waiting lists. When a clinic becomes available, we will reach out to you with the registration information and/or assist you with the registration process.”

Emails can be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Those without Internet access can call 518-824-8804.
The phone option is for those without Internet access. Please do not sign up through more than one of these methods.
To be placed on the list, please provide:
- · Date of birth
- · Telephone number
- · Physical address
- · Email address (if you have one)
- · Medical conditions Listed in Phase 1C, if you are between ages 60-64
If we require any further information, we will reach out to you.
If someone does not answer the phone, please leave your information as described above and we will add you to the list. We strongly encourage you to use the link or to send an email, so we can keep our phone lines open. This will enable registration of more seniors when clinics become available.
“Here, in what we affectionately call “Hometown, USA”, we are going to do everything humanly possible to make this vaccination process as easy as we can for our senior citizens, now that New York State has finally allowed county public health departments to get involved in the vaccination of the seniors who have been most affected by this pandemic,” said Rachel Seeber, Chairwoman of the Warren County Board of Supervisors. “We understand this process has been confusing and frustrating at times, and we know improvements were needed. We hope that this helps to provide information quickly, factually and effectively so that we are addressing the needs of our most vulnerable members of our community.“
While Warren/Hamilton Counties OFA wants to assist as many seniors as possible, the agency does not have the current capacity to open up the waiting list to other counties.
