Free COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic Scheduled For June 11

 

The Wayne County Department of Public Health will conduct a free Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine clinic from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Friday, June 11 at the Junior-Senior High School.

The clinic is open to Marion residents and Marion Central School District students between the ages of 12 and 17.

Community members are asked to register for the clinic by clicking here. Parental consent is also required for anyone ages 12 to 17. Parents must complete and sign this COVID 19 vaccination form for all students participating.

For questions on the clinic, please contact Wayne County Public Health by phone at (315) 946-5749 or by email at wcph@co.wayne.ny.us.

Any student between the ages of 12 and 17 who receives a vaccination will also be eligible to receive a full scholarship to a SUNY or CUNY college under a new program introduced by Gov. Andrew Cuomo last week.

Participants in the “Get a Shot to Make Your Future” can enter into a random prize drawing and potentially receive a full scholarship to a SUNY or CUNY college. Winners receive a full scholarship to any public college or university, including tuition and room and board. New York state will administer the random drawing and select 10 winners a week over five weeks for a total of 50 winners. Federal COVID-19 relief and outreach funds will be used to cover the cost of this vaccination incentive program.

The winners will receive up to four years of full-time undergraduate study or five years in an approved five-year bachelor's degree program which includes the following components:

  • Tuition: An amount equal to tuition at the State or City University of New York's in-state tuition.
  • Non-tuition Costs: Room and board and allowances for books, supplies and transportation up to the average cost at SUNY colleges.
  • Residence: Students living on campus will receive a higher room and board allowance than commuter students. If housing is not available for students on campus, they will receive the same allowance as students living on campus.

The New York State Department of Health and New York State Higher Education Services Corporation will verify the vaccination status of winners.
