It was another day of condolences for Oneida and Herkimer Counties as more deaths were reported today from COVID-19. Six people died in Oneida County and there was one new death in Herkimer County.

Oneida County had 141 new positive cases for a total of 3,801 active positive cases. 119 Oneida County residents are hospitalized and being treated for the virus.  Herkimer County added 37 new cases for an active case total of 807. 35 Herkimer county sidings are hospitalized with the virus.

The focus for so many people continues to be the lack of vaccine availability. SUNY POLY in Marcy continues vaccinate residents but no new appointments are being made. Oneida County continues to be out of the vaccine, and released this statement on Saturday.

PLEASE NOTE: Oneida County Government is currently out of vaccine and will not be scheduling new first dose appointments at the county-operated distribution site at Mohawk Valley Community College in Utica, nor the drive thru distribution site at Griffiss International Airport in Rome, until more vaccine is delivered by New York State. This does not affect second dose distribution for those who received their first dose at either of those sites.
