As a healthcare organization, we have a responsibility to protect our patients, communities and colleagues from COVID-19. The best way to do that is by requiring that everyone working for Hudson Headwaters is fully vaccinated. Hudson Headwaters approached this decision with great care and in coordination with regional partners as increasing vaccination uptake is criticalRead more →
A message from our Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Bill Borgos:
As you may be aware, the Biden administration has announced that additional doses of COVID-19 vaccine may be recommended for the general population beginning 8 months after completion of the original vaccination series, but no earlier than September 20th.
At this point, the announcement appears to only apply to persons who received either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines. It is not known if this recommendation will apply to persons who received the Johnson and Johnson vaccine.
We expect to receive detailed guidance from the CDC and NYSDOH in the coming weeks.
Once we receive this guidance, we will work with our local and regional partners to help coordinate vaccination opportunities for our patients and our community.
We will post updates as details become available. In order to not overwhelm phone lines, we ask that you refrain from calling our health centers with “additional vaccine dose questions” until more information is available.
We will do our best to keep our patients up to date. Thank you for your patience.
