Public/Private Partnership Key to COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution

RENSSELAER COUNTY – Having a COVID-19 vaccine is incredibly important for our efforts to end this global pandemic. For months, we have been forced to alter our lives, businesses have suffered, and people’s health has been at risk. As one of the first and hardest hit states, we can finally look to the future with hope that this will soon be behind us. As members of the Rensselaer County Legislature, we understand the challenges from both perspectives and greatly appreciate the role of our medical professionals and unsung heroes in the medical supply chain.

Manufacturers, who developed the vaccine, are hard at work producing as many doses as possible to meet the growing demands. These companies defeated all odds and developed not one, but two COVID-19 vaccines in less than 12 months. And as they focus on increasing production, distributors and medical providers have picked up the baton to get available vaccines into the arms of eligible populations.

Our healthcare distributors are responsible for shipping the vaccines from the federal government and manufacturers to the state of New York. They are critical to ensuring doses are safely and efficiently delivered while our medical providers valiantly administer the vaccines as they are delivered.

While demand is still outnumbering available doses, we are on our way to inoculating the population from the virus. Meanwhile, we must be patient as our dedicated healthcare professionals throughout Rensselaer County work hand-in-hand with our county government and Health Department to ensure that every resident who needs and wants to be vaccinated has that opportunity, protection and peace of mind.

Sincerely, Scott Bendett
Rensselaer County Legislature Health Committee Chair

Legislative Co-signers: Chuck Peter, Bob Loveridge
