Cayuga County Health Department launches #VaxtoSchool campaign

Students throughout Cayuga County have a chance to receive a $25 Amazon gift card, if they receive their first dose of the Pfizer vaccine before November 19th. That’s because the Cayuga County Health Department is participating in the #VaxtoSchool campaign. 

The campaign was created by New York State as an attempt to encourage those 12-17 years-old to get vaccinated.

“COVID-19 is still a risk for individuals of all ages, including children and adolescents, and getting vaccinated is the best way to protect yourself, friends, family and our school communities from the virus,” explained the health department.

The department will be hosting COVID-19 vaccination clinics at the Fingerlakes Mall on the following dates:

  • Wednesday, October 6: 4-5 p.m.
  • Friday, October 8: 4-5 p.m.

All three COVID-19 vaccines will be offered. REGISTRATION WILL BE REQUIRED. To register for an appointment, visit the Cayuga County Health Department website.
