Tarrytown/Sleepy Hollow Vaccine Pop-Up Seeks Volunteers

From the Hudson Independent: Af­ter low­er­ing the age limit from 65 to 60 and adding teach­ers to the list of res­i­dents el­i­gi­ble for a one-day vac­ci­na­tion clinic on March 20th, of­fi­cials at the two vil­lages were able to fill their ap­point­ment sched­ules and even add an ad­di­tional 150 doses for a to­tal of 650. A wait­ing list has been cre­ated, but of­fi­cials don’t an­tic­i­pate many can­cel­la­tions.

Now they are look­ing for vol­un­teers to help process the ap­point­ments–both on March 20th and then again four weeks later on April 17th for the sec­ond dose.

The sup­ply of Mod­erna vac­cines, which re­quire two doses a month apart, comes from the Rite Aid chain of phar­ma­cies. The in­oc­u­la­tions will take place at the Sleepy Hol­low Mid­dle School gym­na­sium at the school cam­pus on Broad­way.

Those vol­un­teer­ing to serve in one of a va­ri­ety of jobs at the site are asked to fill out a form in­di­cat­ing which of four four-hour shifts they’d be will­ing to work, whether they have any med­ical ex­pe­ri­ence and whether they them­selves have been vac­ci­nated against the coro­n­avirus. “We are just quickly is­su­ing this sur­vey/​form to get a bit more in­for­ma­tion about you,” Tar­ry­town As­sis­tant Vil­lage Ad­min­is­tra­tor Josh Ringel wrote in a cover mes­sage so­lic­it­ing vol­un­teer. “We’ve had a ton of in­ter­est, which is great.”

Those in­ter­ested are asked to com­plete the fol­low­ing Sur­vey Mon­key ques­tion­naire by 9:00 p.m. Sat­ur­day, March 13.
