Tompkins County Public Health Director Frank Kruppa stated, “After this weekend, 60% of our Tompkins County population will be vaccinated with at least the first dose. This is an incredible achievement and a testament to the dedication of our community to protect themselves and others.” 

“We still have a ways to go to achieve the last mile to herd immunity and we are struggling to fill appointments. We are planning for future weeks to have a clear schedule of clinics and more flexibility with locations, hours, and walk-in opportunities. For those who have gotten vaccinated, please encourage and assist your family members to sign up for an appointment,” Kruppa continued.  

Governor Andrew Cuomo announced that beginning Friday, April 23, selected NYS mass vaccination sites will offer walk-in appointments for individuals 60 years and over to get vaccinated.
