In 2008, the nursing and clerical staff of the Immunization program held vaccination clinics at multiple sites throughout Putnam County and provided 749 immunizations to 356 children and adults to protect them from the devastating effects of vaccine preventable diseases. They also staffed Point of Dispensing (POD) clinics during the fall and winter months. Over 3,000 doses of influenza vaccine and over 100 doses of pneumococcal vaccine were administered to the residents and employees of Putnam County.

The Migrant and Seasonal Farm Workers Program was established in 2005 to service the immunization needs of the immigrant and underinsured population. Free evening clinics are offered on a monthly basis. 644 vaccines provided by the NYSDOH were administered by the bilingual staff to 412 uninsured clients to protect them from hepatitis A and B, Diphtheria, Tetanus, Pertussis, Measles, Mumps, Rubella, and Influenza. Tuberculin skin testing and follow up medical intervention when needed. This proactive intervention offered protection to the clients as well as the community from outbreaks of vaccine preventable communicable diseases.
