MH Update – 4/29/21 – Vaccine Education for OMH and OASAS Service Recipients and Providers

In order to promote increased use of the vaccine, the Office of Mental Health, (OMH), and the Office of Addiction Services And Supports, (OASAS), are offering regular webex presentations specifically designed for people receiving services. There will be a robust question and answer session for participants to ask questions of the expert panelists. We will have additional sessions at varying times and days throughout the spring and early summer. Please encourage service recipients who have not been vaccinated to attend these educational seminars. Staff are also encouraged to join and can reinforce and share the information with other staff and recipients who have are still unsure about getting vaccinated.
