How do I get vaccinated against COVID-19?
Since we do not have any COVID-19 vaccines in stock, we tell our patients to visit New York State's website to find a vaccine appointment near you. If you are having difficulty locating any kind of vaccination appointment, please give us a call at 845-561-7075.
Can I receive the vaccine if I am pregnant or breastfeeding?
A pregnant woman will remain at risk for severe illness from COVID-19 complications. The COVID-19 vaccine may protect you from developing a severe illness.
Currently, there is no medical evidence that the COVID-19 vaccine will not pose a risk for pregnant women, but the vaccines are available and recommended for those who are pregnant.
If you have any doubts, speak with your obstetrician about the risks and benefits of receiving the COVID-19 vaccine.
I am immunocompromised, can I still receive the COVID-19 vaccine?
Immunocompromised individuals are eligible and should receive a COVID-19 vaccine. Cross Valley Health & Medicine highly encourages those who have immune-related illnesses, like cancer, to consult their primary care provider (PCP) as part of making the decision to when to receive the vaccine.
Can I still transmit COVID-19 to others after being vaccinated?
Evidence is still being collected regarding the prevention of transmission for COVID-19 symptoms between those who have been vaccinated. There still is a possibility that even when vaccinated against COVID-19, you may still pose a risk to transmit symptoms to others.
After being fully vaccinated, combining mask-wearing, social distancing, and hand hygiene will reduce your personal risk of infection.
