Primary Care Right on Campus
The New York state Department of Health offered an important clarification on vaccine eligibility for “essential in-person staff” at colleges and universities. According to the Department of Health, staff who are working remotely because they are not vaccinated, but would begin working in person once they have been vaccinated, are eligible to be vaccinated within this category, assuming they then begin to work in person.
Rochester Regional Health Family Medicine Practice at RIT has announced a new COVID-19 vaccine sign-up for eligible RIT faculty and staff. Check the RRH website for available appointments. Or go to the New York state website to schedule an appointment.
Excused time off
Plus, employees in New York can receive up to four hours of excused time off with pay, per injection, to receive the COVID-19 vaccination. Read more ›
