NORWICH – Chenango County public health nurses will no longer administer vaccinations at regular clinics in off-site locations.
Public Health Director Marcas Flindt said service was discontinued in McDonough, Unadilla Valley School, Greene, Bainbridge, Afton, South Otselic and Oxford at the beginning of the year on a trial basis through March. The move is designed to free up nurses’ time.
“Two and sometimes three nurses spend the day at a remote clinic only to deliver three vaccinations. They would be there all day,” he said.
