Rensselaer County and Stewart’s Shops will be teaming up for four vaccination clinics at Stewart’s locations in the coming weeks, County Executive Steve McLaughlin and Stewart’s President Gary Dake announced.

The four locations are located across the county and will help ensure residents have convenient and ready access to vaccinations during the summer.

“Rensselaer County is committed to making COVID-19 vaccinations available and accessible to all, and we appreciate Stewart’s partnering with the county for these four clinics.
