The Capital Region Vaccination Network, or Hub, continues working closely with the New York State Department of Health; the Albany, Columbia, Greene, Rensselaer, Saratoga, Schenectady, Warren and Washington county health departments; federally qualified health centers; and physicians practices to distribute the vaccine to eligible populations according to the state’s plan. The state also dictates supply of the vaccine. As such, points of distribution (PODs) will be established based on vaccine availability. As availability expands, more PODs will be created, and the Hub and its partners will inform members of the community of location and eligibility. The availability of appointments is limited based on current supply. Hospitals have been directed to prioritize vaccine distribution for New Yorkers in Tier 1A, which includes healthcare workers and residents of long-term healthcare facilities.
