Online and e-mail spam fraud is moving very quickly and will take many forms. Scammers rapidly alter their tactics and adapt their schemes to the changing landscape. We all can anticipate that these scammers will leverage the pending COVID-19 vaccine to prey on unsuspecting beneficiaries.
- You likely will not need to pay anything out of pocket to get the vaccine during this public health emergency.
- You cannot pay to put your name on a list to get the vaccine.
- You cannot pay to get early access to the vaccine.
- No one from Medicare or the Health Department with contact you.
- No one from a vaccine distribution site or health care payer, like a private insurance company, will call you asking for your Social Security number or your credit card or bank account information to sign you up to get the vaccine.
- Beware of providers offering other products, treatments, or medicines to prevent the virus. Check with your health care provider before paying for or receiving any COVID-19-related treatment.
- If you get a call, text, e-mail — or even someone knocking on your door — claiming they can get you early access to the vaccine, STOP. That’s a scam.

The New York State Department of Health, in partnership with counties, has established local points of contact to expand access to vaccines through an in-home vaccination program. This program helps those who are homebound due to physical limitations, cognitive impairment, other chronic conditions, a lack of transportation, and/or visual impairments, and who do not have access to supports that may help them physically go to an existing vaccination provider.
WMCHealth has launched an interactive directory to Hudson Valley residents with accessing COVID-19 vaccinations. The directory allows the user to search an interactive map by location type, such as pharmacy or health clinic, location name and county. Clicking on a location serves up detailed information about the location, who might be eligible to receive a vaccine at that location, and how to register for an appointment. The directory does not represent the actual inventory of each location, only that a location has received a recent distribution, or a distribution sometime in the past. Each location controls its own schedule and makes its own appointment.
Governor Andrew Cuomo has signed legislation instituting new leave for employees to receive their COVID-19 vaccine. Under this new law, employees will be granted up to four hours of excused leave per injection that will not be charged against any other leave the employee has earned or accrued. This legislation is effective immediately.
