According to the New York State COVID-19 Vaccine Tracker, 21.4% of Livingston County residents have had at least one vaccine dose while 12.5% have completed the vaccine series as of March 14, 2021.
Livingston County’s Director of Public Health, Jennifer Rodriguez, commented, “As we continue to receive more doses for our vaccine clinics at the Livingston County Department of Health (LCDOH), we can continue to safely and efficiently expand our vaccination efforts for those who are in the eligible populations.”

– Individuals 60 years of age and older; and
– Those who are 18 years of age and older with chronic conditions like cancer, diabetes, heart conditions and lung diseases.
