Vaccination Information
Ulster County: COVID-19 Vaccination Resource Center – Ulster County COVID-19 Information (  On this website, you will be able to do three things: 1) review the eligibility protocol to know if you are eligible to receive a vaccine
2) sign up to receive notifications about when appointments are open (if you’re eligible)
3) access FAQs about vaccine distribution

Please note that as of late January, there is an enormous issues with supply so the process of getting an appointment is very frustrating.  As the supply increases, appointments will be easier to get.  Keep trying and pray for those who have no or little access to computers to be able to schedule an appointment for themselves.

You may want to follow the Ulster County Facebook page to receive updates.

How can I help?

A Prayer for these times
May we who are merely inconvenienced, remember those whose lives are at stake and those who are most vulnerable. May we be attentive to one another as we face varying degrees of financial hardship and uncertainty as a result of this global health crisis. During this time when we cannot physically wrap our arms around each other, let us find ways to be the loving embrace of God to our neighbors. And as fear grips our country, may we choose love. God of Love, God of Life, be with us. Amen.
