1/18/21: The County has opened new appointment times. Dutchess County COVID Vaccine Info: COVID-19 Vaccine Information (dutchessny.gov) Supply is limited and appointments are being filled up within minutes, so you should sign up on their website to be notified when new doses become available.

Update 1/13/21: Fishkill Center completed it’s second Vaccine Clinic yesterday. Thank you again to our residents and staff and the CVS staff, and we look forward to what the future holds as the vaccine rollout continues around the state and the country.

We are also tracking and investigating a sudden surge in staff asymptomatic positives. False positives are possible with labs, as we have seen in the summer. The facility continues to take proper safety measures, including usage of N-95 masks and Face Shields worn by staff on all resident units.

Update: Fishkill Center is CONFIRMED for its testing dates. This is a 2-dose vaccine: Dose 1 is to be given on 12/22/20 starting at 10am. Dose 2 is to be given on 1/12/21 starting at 10am. We will be getting the Pfizer vaccine. CDC has released guidance pertaining to the vaccine: you can find the link here: About Pfizer Vaccine. Residents and Staff must be registered in advance. For any questions, please submit via the contact form at the bottom of the page.

Update: 12/13/20: The CDC held a very informative session this afternoon for providers, offering guidance for clinicians. There is another informational session tomorrow. After that we feel confident we will be able to answer pertinent questions pertaining to the vaccine.

Update: 12/12/20: The facility has received a tentative first clinic date from CVS for the administration of the COVID vaccine – 12/22/20. We will be reaching out individually to all our residents, families, and staff at the beginning of this week to discuss what we know, consents or declinations, any questions, etc. So please be on the lookout for our call and start to think about any questions you have regarding the vaccine as we get closer to the vaccine date. We will post further updates here as we learn more.

Update: 12/3/2020: The facility received an exciting introduction email from CVS pharmacy yesterday, who will be our vaccine provider for COVID-19. The email outlined a tentative plan for release of information, registration, consent, and vaccination. As we receive more details, and a date gets more firmed up, we will be speaking individually with all our residents, families, and staff.

If the current tentative timetables hold true, the facility staff and residents might be looking at a first vaccination date before the New Year.

In the meantime, take a look at the CVS Data Sheet as well as an insightful FAQ document on what we know so far about the vaccine.
