St. Hugh Church to Host Covid-19 Vaccinations on Tuesday

UPDATE

St. Hugh of Lincoln in Huntington Station will host Covid-19 vaccinations on Tuesday, the governor’s office said Saturday.

A link used to make an appointment was showing that all slots were booked. It is unclear whether other appointments are available.

St. Hugh is one of eight church host sites in the state added Saturday to the list of providers, and is the only one so far in Suffolk County.

The state said that churches would handle booking appointments but no one at St. Hugh was immediately available to say how that would work.

Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo’s office said that vaccinations would go from  2-6pm, and that Northwell Health is the medical partner in the process.

No further information was immediately available.

Huntington Station has had higher infection rates than many other communities on Long Island.

“Although the vaccine is limited right now, we must do everything we can to get the vaccine to seniors, our hardest hit communities, and essential workers,” said Tracey Edwards, a former member of the Huntington Town Board and Long Island regional director of the NAACP.

The governor’s office did not immediately answer questions about  how many vaccinations would be available or which one–Pfizer or Moderna–would be used.

Huntington Town Councilman Ed Smyth said, “I wecome every opportunity to get the public vaccinated as quickly as possible. I have every confidence in the folks of St. Hugh’s to get this done.”

New York is building kits to deploy kits to the appropriate locations. Each kit includes step-by-step instructions for how to set up a site, and critical supplies and equipment such as: 

The kits include:

  • Office Supplies
  • Workstation Equipment
  • Communications Equipment
  • Cleaning Supplies
  • Lighting Equipment
  • PPE
  • Crowd/Traffic Control Equipment
  • Vials
  • Syringes
  • Room Dividers
  • Privacy Curtains

  1. Is St. Hugh Church still giving out the COVID vaccine out on Tuesday? I am eligible for the vaccine. Please let me know if they are going
    to have the vaccine.
    Thank you

    1. All I know is that the governor said St. Hugh would be handing it out and that the church would be handling reservations. Neither the governor’s office nor anyone else has been able to provide any more information than that. But if I find out, I wll let you know.

  2. Is there a number I can call to make a reservation? Also there’s a major snow storm on Tuesday if it’s really bad do they plan to change the date.

  3. We also are seniors with health problems who are in need of the covid vaccine . There are 3 of us,my husband and me and our sister – in -law. We have tried everywhere without success and at 79 we don’t have many opportunities to get vaccinated befor summer which may be too late! Please help us to get into the St Hugh program. Thank you

  4. My husband & I are 80 years old and have not been able to get an appointment for the vaccine? Please add our names to your list. Thank you.

  5. I am a 80 year year old with asthma who has been praying for the vaccine. Please add my name to the list. Thank You. I have been trying so hard to get an appointment.

    COVID 19 VACCINES

    NYS WILL BE GIVING 250 VACCINES TO MEMBERS OF OUR COMMUNITY TUESDAY JANUARY 26 FROM 2 PM – 6 PM. REGISTRATION WAS DONE THROUGH THE NYS WEBSITE AND ALL SPOTS WERE TAKEN BY SATURDAY JANUARY 23, 2021.

    SORRY FOR THE INCONVENIENCE.

  8. It is obvious that members of the St Hughs community need to get the covid vaccine. From the looks of all of the above responses, those of us in our late 70’s and beyond also need it desperately as well. Do you think our govenor can set up a site for those of us in the above age category? Those of us 65+ kind of squeezed us out! This wasn’t the original plan for part 1b.
