Madison County to host vaccine clinic at the Roadside Tavern, other clinics
WWAMPSVILLE, N.Y. » The Madison County Health Department (MCDOH) has organized COVID-19 vaccination clinics for the month of October.
MCDOH and the CDC are now strongly and urgently recommending vaccination against COVID-19 for people who are pregnant, recently pregnant (including those who are lactating), trying to become pregnant, or who might become pregnant in the future.
There is no evidence that the COVID-19 vaccines affect anyone’s
fertility or causes infertility, officials say. Pregnant people are at greater risk of having severe infection from COVID-19 in addition to preterm delivery and Csection. Complications from COVID-19 can put both the pregnant person’s and baby’s lives at risk.
To help get more people and pregnant persons vaccinated, MCDOH announced new pop-up Johnson & Johnson (J&J) vaccine clinics in addition to Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccine clinics for October.
