The Nassau County Department of Health has issued the following message regarding the availability of the COVID-19 vaccine:

“Following the initial distributions to high-risk frontline health care workers and long-term care facility staff and residents, we will work to provide the vaccine to additional priority groups, to include older adults over 65.

As of December 29th we started delivering vaccines to our emergency (EMS) responders, urgent care providers and other health care providers with direct patient contact.  Once that is complete, we plan to provide the vaccine to the priority group of older adults over 65.  We do not have an exact timeline for providing the vaccine to these priority groups but we are committed to providing the vaccine to each priority group and to the general public as quickly as possible.   Our plans are dependent on vaccine supply and delivery.

Updates on timelines for the general public will be provided as those plans become available. Please monitor the OneNassau website (www.onenassau.com) from Nassau County Emergency Management for updates.  As this is a rapidly evolving process, we appreciate your patience.

In the interim, please follow the recommended safety measures”.

If you have any questions, please contact the Nassau County Department of Health directly at (904) 875-6100.
