SUNY Oswego looks forward to becoming a vaccination site

OSWEGO, N.Y. — SUNY Oswego is ready to become a vaccination site for both the campus and the larger Oswego community. Vaccinations will likely reach the campus in the next week or two, according to University administrators. 

Although eligibility for the vaccination may not include all students, SUNY Oswego’s Deputy to the President for External Partnerships and Economic Development, Pamela Caraccioli, said some may be at the front of the line. 

We’re working right now on getting our SAVAC, students that run the ambulance core. They will be vaccinated,” Caraccioli said. 

“We have a phenomenal leadership team in place that’s putting all of those pieces together, from health and safety to the actual vaccinators themselves, to security. All of those pieces have all been determined and the facilities have been identified,” said Caraccioli. 

The Hewitt Ballroom, located on the SUNY Oswego campus, is the location being readied for vaccinations to come in. While the administration hopes to begin next week, the recent weather conditions may delay vaccines for another week.
