OSWEGO — Oswego County Opportunities Crisis and Development Services recently hosted a COVID vaccine clinic at its Drop-In-Center at Hillside Commons in Oswego.

“This was the second clinic that we have hosted, said OCO Health Education Services Coordinator Ellen Lazarek. “I’m pleased that we are collaborating with the Health Department to connect people to vaccines and help provide locations to do so. OCO has a long history of working together with the health department and we are glad to have the opportunity to assist them in meeting community needs.”
