A message from Oak Orchard Health’s Chief Medical Officer
Dear Oak Orchard Patients and extended Family,
We understand you are living in uncertain and stressful times but there is a light at the end of the tunnel. With the new vaccines approved, we encourage you to get them when you’re eligible. Currently, NYS has assigned Oak Orchard Health to vaccinate phase 1a healthcare workers and 1b essential workers. At this time, we are not assigned people age 65+ BUT guidelines change frequently. And we currently do not have any vaccine to give out but we expect that to change. Keep checking our website or Facebook page for updated information.
Also, it’s important that you keep up your health routines such as physicals, dental cleanings, vision care, and behavior health services, if needed. It’s been one year since this pandemic started and these are necessary steps to keep you and your loved ones healthy. Please know that Oak Orchard remains open and here to serve you. We are adapting our medical delivery as well, using Telehealth to serve you from home so you don’t necessarily need to come to the health center for every visit.
Thank you for your willingness to help during this trying time. As always, Oak Orchard Health is here to assist you and your family in your health journey.
Nancy Ciavarri, MD
