COVID-19 CDC & NY State Update

Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced that New York State will follow the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention guidelines for masking and physical distancing for people who have been vaccinated. Individuals that have not been vaccinated are still required to mask up when entering the facilities.

Beginning Wednesday, May 19th, 2021 if you have received your COVID-19 vaccine, you will no longer need your mask, or to continue to physical distance in most places across New York State. This new guidance will be in effect for the Eyer Building & Public Works Garage.

The guidance still calls for wearing masks in crowded indoor settings like buses, planes, hospitals, prisons and homeless shelters but it will help clear the way for reopening workplaces, schools, and other venues. This will even remove the need for social distancing for those who are fully vaccinated.

Check back for updates.

Dear Resident,

We've been getting a lot of inquiries from residents about how they can receive their COVID-19 vaccine, so I wanted to take some time to share a few resources with you, which you will find below. At this time, the Town/Village is not part of the vaccine administration process, which is being run primarily through Monroe County and New York State. We do want to be a resource and point people in the right direction so as many friends, family members and neighbors as possible can get vaccinated and help reduce the spread of COVID-19 here in our community.

With more than 200,000 vaccine doses having been administered in the Finger Lakes Region, we are on the right track, but we can't let our guard down yet. Please continue to wear a mask, maintain your social distancing, wash your hands, and know that we will get through this together.

WHO IS ELIGIBLE TO RECIVE A VACCINE?

New York State is currently vaccinating Phase 1a and Phase 1b groups. Here are the groups that are currently eligible:

People ages 65 and older

Teachers and education workers

7 Things to Know about the COVID-19 Vaccine

1) You cannot get COVID-19 from the vaccine.
Unlike other kinds of vaccines, the COVID-19 vaccines do not contain the actual virus (living or dead), so it is impossible for them to infect you with COVID. Learn more about 
how the COVID-19 vaccines work.


2) Even if you have already been sick with COVID, you should still get the vaccine.

It is possible to get COVID-19 more than once, and we still do not know how long a person is protected by natural immunity after they have recovered from COVID-19.


3) You need two doses of the current vaccine.

With the current Pfizer and Moderna vaccines, two shots are needed to ensure the best immune system response. One shot probably offers some level of protection, but the research shows that immunity significantly develops after the second dose. You’ll generally get the shots three to four weeks apart. Your vaccine provider will schedule the second shot at your first appointment (Please note - once the Johnson & Johnson vaccine begins being distributed, individuals who receive this vaccine will only need a single shot).


4) The vaccine will not make you test positive on COVID-19 tests.

Tests to diagnose COVID-19, such as PCR or antigen tests done by nasal swabs or saliva samples, are checking for the presence of the virus, not immunity. Because the COVID-19 vaccines do not contain the virus, they will not affect those tests.

Tests to see if you have had COVID-19 at some point in the past, such as antibody tests, are done through blood samples. Because vaccines are designed to stimulate your body’s immune system, there is a possibility you may test positive on an antibody test. Experts are currently looking at how COVID-19 vaccination may affect antibody testing results.


5) The vaccine is free.

The COVID-19 vaccines are free. No one must pay for a vaccination, and no one can be denied a vaccination, regardless of ability to pay. Vaccination providers may charge an administration fee for giving someone the shot, but the fee will be reimbursed by the patient’s public or private insurance company. Uninsured patients do not have to pay any fee. No one can be denied a vaccine if they are unable to pay the vaccine administration fee. If an individual believes they are the victim of an unlawful activity, such incurring financial costs when assessing a COVID vaccine, they can report it to the NYS Attorney General.

Also, beware of vaccine scams and fraud. If anyone is promising you the vaccine in exchange for money, you should NOT pay them. If you suspect fraud, you can contact New York state authorities by calling 1-833-VAX-SCAM (1-833-829-7226) or emailing STOPVAXFRAUD@health.ny.gov.

 

6) Temporary side effects are normal after you get your vaccine.

They are a sign that the vaccine is doing its job: training your body to build immunity against the COVID-19 virus. These side effects can include fever, fatigue, headaches, muscle and joint pain, or chills, lasting about 12 to 24 hours. They are more common after the second dose of the vaccine. Having these side effects does not mean you are sick with COVID-19. The vaccines do not contain any part of the COVID-19 virus and cannot cause that infection. Learn more about what side effects to expect and get helpful tips on how to reduce pain and discomfort after your shots.

7) You need to keep wearing a mask and social distancing after you have had your vaccine.

It takes time for your body to build protection after any vaccination. COVID-19 vaccines that require two shots may not protect you until a week or two after your second shot. Masking and social distancing will also continue to be important for months until everyone who wants a vaccination is able to get it, and the spread of the virus has been stopped. Continued masking is also important because researchers don’t know yet whether a vaccinated person can spread coronavirus.

 

CONTINUING UPDATES

 

As vaccine production and distribution continue to increase, the number of appointment slots will grow and the eligibility categories will continue to expand. Here at the Town/Village, we will continue to provide updates as frequently as possible.

VACCINATION UPDATE

Yesterday East Rochester participated on a municipal call with Monroe County Executive Bello and Dr. Michael Mendoza. We learned that it is unknown at this time when seniors will be able to get the Covid-19 vaccination. In preparation for that day we have offered a location here in East Rochester to Monroe County. The County will need that identified location when the supply is sufficient for mass distribution. Currently all Fire Department staff and funeral home employees are receiving vaccinations this week from Monroe County. No vaccination dates have been released for our Police Department or the Department of Public Works. Nursing Homes and similar care facilities are covered under Federal vaccinations which are currently being administered through Walgreens & CVS. As soon as more information is made available we will share it with all residents.
