Dear ACS Colleagues,
I am very excited to share that ACS is working with the City’s Vaccine Command Center to create a Point of Distribution (POD) for COVID-19 vaccinations for eligible ACS employees. As a reminder, those eligible include: ACS frontline essential staff (CPS, YDS, etc.), individuals age 65 and older, and individuals with the comorbidities and underlying conditions listed here.
This POD will be located at 150 William Street and is scheduled to begin March 3rd, and be in place for about two weeks. More details, including how to register, will be shared soon.
I know that there have been some challenges in getting vaccine appointments, so I am very pleased that we will be able to have this POD specifically for eligible ACS staff. In addition, eligible ACS staff will also be able to make appointments for eligible family members at this site. There will be a limit of 1 eligible family member who can accompany a staff member being vaccinated, unless additional family members live in the same household with the staff member.
Getting vaccinated is such an important step in bringing an end to this health crisis. When you get vaccinated, you are helping to protect yourself and your family and friends. You are also helping to make your community safer. To learn more about the COVID-19 vaccine, please click here.
