Nassau County vaccine appointments on hold – No appointment scheduling this week

Information from

Public Relations Officer
January 12, 2021

For individuals who wish to schedule a COVID-19 vaccination, you must wait. According to Dave Richardson, Emergency Management Public Relations Officer, “Nassau County did not receive from the state any additional allotments of vaccine this week. We will not be scheduling this week and cannot schedule any new appointments until Nassau County receives additional vaccine from the state. As of today, we do not know when the next allotment will be made available for Nassau County.”

On a positive note, Richardson said, “appointments were scheduled last week for “shots in the arm” this week, including today. Approximately, 400 appointments were booked for all of this week.”

Can somebody explain why Nassau County hasn’t received any new doses? Other counties in the area seem to be moving faster.

so what percentage of the people who tried to get appointment does the 400 actually represent? Seems like we should be doing better than vaccinating less than the 620 that tested positive on 1/3/21.

Let’s see – – 40 doses – – how many thousand folks in the county? This could take a while, but we’ll be out of the woods anytime now NOT
