Increased Turnout at Vaccine Clinics in Monroe County

Written by on September 27, 2021

Yesterday was the final day that hospitals and nursing home employees will need to have had at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine before the end of the day. Ahead of this mandate, Monroe County has seen an increased turnout at vaccines clinics. Dr. Stephen Cook of the University of Rochester Medical Center stated: “The turnout is really good. We’ve had some people saying, ‘Well, I came all the way from another county because I want to get my shot and get it for work.”

Amidst the increase in vaccinations, data has been released within the last week that indicates 99 percent of workers at Strong Memorial, Highland, and F.F. Thompson hospitals have been vaccinated. Monroe County Executive Adam Bello stated that contingency plans have been put in place: “Critical care services in Monroe County are not going to be impacted. Will adjustments have to be made? Of course. We want to assure residents in Monroe County that if they have a health emergency or they’re sick, they have to reach out to their doctor. Reach out to the healthcare systems, and you will be cared for.”
