COLONY, NY (NEWS10) – Colony Town Supervisor Peter Crummey announced Wednesday that a vaccination clinic will be held at Sand Creek Middle School on Thursday, Jan.6, from 4:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. Second pediatric doses and boosters will be given at the clinic.
Colony City will have Colony EMS Paramedics and Colony Police to help ensure the success of this event. City departments were tasked with not only following health-related guidelines, but also using staggered daily schedules and other work practices to aid in the delivery of quality services.
The city’s original distribution of COVID home tests sold out within three hours of their delivery date in December. A new allocation is expected soon from Albany County and colony officials urge the public to sign up through their Stay Connected messaging system for more information. This is a free and voluntary electronic service for anyone interested in learning more about the city’s services, activities, alerts and events.
Supervisor Crummey said, “While this new variation is putting everyone in a tough spot, employees in our city are working with the state and county to protect and lead the community through this crisis. While it is not easy for families, I encourage everyone to take action to protect themselves and their families. With the City’s workforce rallying to the effort, I have no doubts that we will be able to continue to provide the services our residents deserve.
KN-95 masks are always available at the Police Department reception, located at 312 Wolf Road in Latham.
