HORNELL – The Steuben County Public Health Department in partnership with the City of Hornell is opening another weekday COVID-19 vaccination clinic location at the Hornell Community Art Center. Starting April 26, the clinic will be open in Hornell Monday through Friday from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. The vaccine being utilized currently is Moderna and is available for anyone age 18 and older.
“We have seen success with our Bath weekday clinic and are thankful for the collaboration with the City of Hornell to offer regular opportunities for vaccination in the western part of the county,” said Public Health Director, Darlene Smith. “The vaccine we currently have is Moderna, which has been proven safe, effective at preventing COVID infections at a high level, and protects adults from serious illness, hospitalization and death. Now is a great time to get vaccinated to protect your health and your loved ones.”
The weekday vaccination clinic in Bath at the Civil Defense Training Center will remain open as well and runs Monday through Friday from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm.
To attend either clinic, participants can pre-register for an appointment time using the link found on Public Health’s COVID-19 page. Walk-ins are also accepted at both clinics, but they may have a short wait if appointment slots are already filled.
“We are very happy to team up with our partners at Steuben County Public Health to offer these much needed vaccines to Hornell and area residents,” said Mayor of Hornell, John Buckley. “I urge residents to take advantage of this wonderful opportunity.”
All clinic attendees must wear appropriate face coverings and will be expected to wait 15-30 minutes after vaccination for observation. Attendees should wear short sleeves or appropriate clothing for vaccination.
Residents currently under isolation or quarantine at the time of the clinic due to a positive COVID-19 test result or as a contact to a positive are not eligible to attend the clinic.
