Rural Health Network will continue to focus its vaccine advocacy, outreach, engagement, and public health education efforts on rural communities with the greatest need for support within our service area. We are also offering vaccine support to individuals throughout our service area through support from Rural Health Network Community Health Workers, Getthere Mobility Transportation Advocates, and Public Health Service Corps members.
The Southern Tier region continues to provide updates on ever-changing covid pandemic and vaccine information via the Southern Tier Regional Covid-19 Vaccine Hub. Vaccine locations, services to help you make an appointment and transportation resources to get you there, information sessions, frequently asked questions, fact sheets and much more can be found on the website.
