O-Agency Link-Outreach-Vaccinate (O-LOV) COVID-19 Vaccination Program

The O-LOV COVID-19 Vaccination Program is offering scheduled pop-up vaccination events. Like other pop-up models throughout the state and the country, O-LOV vaccination resources will be available for ad hoc events at various site types.

The O-LOV program will continue to target O-LOV agency clients and staff. O-LOV pop-up events can be scheduled for any age group, including youth 12 and older. O-LOV can also arrange to provide vaccines at conferences, state advocacy events, and other locations where individuals in O-agency populations may be gathering.

Online scheduling is no longer available for individuals seeking appointments. O-agency staff will not actively outreach to programs and agencies to coordinate vaccination events.

Programs and agencies should follow the instructions below to arrange pop-up events as needed.

HOW TO ARRANGE POP-UP VACCINATION EVENTS

If you, as an O-agency provider or someone otherwise affiliated with an O-agency program identifies a vaccine need, please:

  • Email the O-LOV email account at olov@omh.ny.gov,
  • Contact the local field or regional office for your licensing or credentialing O-agency, OR
  • Contact a member of the O-LOV outreach team (if you have already been in touch for a previous mobile or pop-up vaccination event).

When reaching out to arrange an event, please be prepared to share details about the location, the number and age range of interested individuals, and suggested dates and time frames for the potential event.

Staff will then respond to help coordinate an event.

Note:
The O-LOV program cannot guarantee which vaccines will be available (e.g., Pfizer, Moderna, Janssen).

WHO IS ELIGIBLE (as of 5/23/2021)

  • Any O-agency staff
  • Any New Yorker served by an O-agency program
