SUPERVISOR'S MESSAGE

posted January 5, 2020

The first COVID-19 vaccines are here. While availability is limited in the initial weeks of the vaccination program, more and more Livingston County residents will become eligible as the vaccine supply increases. Please do not schedule a vaccination and back out.  When you do this, the dose you reserved is thrown away.

 

In December 2020, two COVID-19 vaccines were authorized by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and approved by New York's COVID-19 Clinical Advisory Task Force. New York State had developed a COVID-19 Vaccine Program that prioritizes distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine based on need and risk.

While the vaccination process is underway, everyone should wear a mask, social distance and avoid small and large gatherings.

 

According to the New York State COVID-19 Vaccine Program, vaccination recipients are prioritized into phases based on science, clinical expertise and federal guidelines. One of New York’s prioritization strategies for vaccine distribution is designed to ensure early vaccination of the most vulnerable New Yorkers as well as essential front line workers. The phases are as follows:

 

· Phase 1: High-risk hospital workers; nursing home residents and staff; all long-term and congregate care residents and staff; EMS workers; and other health care workers, coroners and medical examiners

 

· Phase 2: First responders; teachers; school staff; childcare providers; public health workers; essential frontline workers who regularly interact with public or maintain critical infrastructure; other long-term care facility patients and individuals living in other congregate settings; and individuals in general population deemed particularly high risk due to comorbidities and health conditions

 

·  Phase 3: Individuals over 65; individuals under 65 with high-risk health conditions

 

·  Phase 4: All other essential workers

 

·  Phase 5: Remainder of the population

 

New York State is currently in the midst of Phase 1A and has provided the following 5-week vaccine prioritization schedule for this phase only.  
 

Week 1: Beginning of Campaign

-High-risk hospital staff, affiliates, volunteers and contract staff, following the clinical risk assessment guidance

Week 2: 12/21/20

-Health care or other high-risk direct care essential staff working in long-term care facilities and long-term congregate settings overseen by the state
-Persons living in long-term care facilities and in long-term congregate settings overseen by the state

Week 3: 12/28/20

-High-risk hospital and federally qualified health center staff, including state psychiatric centers
- Emergency Medical Services (EMS) personnel
- Medical examiners and coroners
- Agency staff and residents in congregate living situations run by the state

- All front-line, high-risk public health workers who have direct contact with patients, including those conducting COVID-19 tests and handling COVID-19 specimens and COVID-19 vaccinations

Week 5: 1/11/21

All populations included in Weeks 1-4, as well as:
- Home care workers
- Hospice workers

According to Jennifer Rodriguez, Livingston County’s Public Health Director, “Along with our regional partners, we have been working on plans to distribute a vaccine since the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis. Our goal is to quickly and safely distribute the vaccine to prioritized groups as it becomes available.”

It may be several months before the vaccine is available for the general public.

IT IS SAFE TO CALL 911

posted May 1, 2020

Together, the Livingston County Departments of EMS and Health want to remind citizens that heart attacks, strokes, and other emergencies do not stop for COVID-19. Seeking medical attention at the first sign of a heart attack, stroke, or any other serious medical emergency is critical to effective treatment and restoring good health.

 

Know the symptoms of a heart attack:

 Chest pain or discomfort

 Neck, shoulder, or jaw discomfort

 Shortness of breath

 Nausea, vomiting, cold sweats, or lightheadedness

 

Know the symptoms of a stroke:

 Facial droop

 Arm or leg weakness or numbness

 Speech difficulty

 Confusion

 Difficulty walking or loss of balance

 

While many are undoubtedly scared to call 911 or go to a hospital in these uncertain times, Livingston County EMS and the Department of Health want you to know that area hospitals and ambulance services are not only ready to care for any medical emergency, but have enacted many infection control measures to keep all patients safe.

If you or a loved one may be having a heart attack, stroke, or other medical emergency, call 911 at the first warning sign. Even during a pandemic, do not ignore warning signs. And lastly, don’t forget to call your doctor if you have any questions about your health.

PAST SUPERVISOR'S MESSAGE

posted December 23, 2020

There is more to the Pandemic than COVID19.  According to Michele Anuszkiewicz, Director of Livingston County Mental Health and Community Services, “Trends show that there has been a significant uptick in depression and anxiety since the COVID-19 crisis began. More people are also seeking comfort in drugs, alcohol and gambling. In addition, thoughts of suicide are on the rise.”
