“Vaccinations are among the most critical parts of the College’s multi-faceted COVID response plan that has been developed to help us return fully to in-person activities on campus. Immunizations will become even more essential for students once SUNY’s system-wide immunization mandate is enacted after one of the vaccines has been approved by the FDA, ”said College President Dr. Kristine Young.
“These PODs will greatly benefit our unvaccinated students and employees; but I hope that our unvaccinated friends and neighbors will also benefit from the easy access to vaccines so that we can all get through this continuing pandemic in the safest way possible, ”she said.
The New York Air Show clinics are for ticket holders and staff only and will be held from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, August 28 and Sunday, August 29 at the Orange County Airport, where the event will be held.
