O-Agency Link-Outreach-Vaccinate (O-LOV) COVID-19 Vaccination Program
OMH Psychiatric Centers have launched eight vaccination hubs at OMH Psychiatric Centers, four in NYC and four upstate, for eligible OMH and OASAS tenants and staff. There are two models for making an appointment: “Provider Agency Group Scheduling,” for which all eligible OMH or OASAS providers will be reached out to by an outreach team that will facilitate setting up vaccination appointments or dispatching a mobile vaccination team if eligible, and “Individual Scheduling,” which allows eligible individuals to schedule an individual appointment. Click here to read more about sites, eligibility, both scheduling models, and find the link to schedule an individual appointment.
