If you are unsuccessful in getting an appointment for either of the two clinics mentioned above, there are other vaccine distribution sites. Bassett states,

"In addition to the hospitals, health systems, county public health departments, and some pharmacies that are playing a role in the state’s COVID-19 vaccination plan, there are a number of New York State-operated vaccination locations being established in areas across the region, including Albany, Binghamton, and Utica. Appointments are required and fill quickly."

For future vaccine clinics, continue to monitor Bassett’s COVID-19 webpage for local and regional vaccine distribution updates and you can also monitor the Otsego County COVID-19 Vaccine clinics webpage.
