COVID-19 Announcements

 Get the Facts PNG

COVID-19 Vaccinations are by appointment only and New Yorkers can determine eligibility and find a New York State-operated vaccination location to receive their first dose through the State's "Am I Eligible" app or call the New York State Vaccination Hotline at 1-833-NYS-4-VAX (1-833-697-4829). You can schedule an appointment to receive the required second dose on site after receiving the first dose. You should not attempt to book your second appointment online.

Additionally, you can sign up for the Westchester County Department of Health Alert System, by clicking here. Eligible residents will be alerted when additional vaccines become available. To be clear, this system will not sign you up for an appointment. This will only sign you up to be alerted when there are additional appointments available.  A list of all non-state-run vaccine providers in Westchester County is available here.

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs is working to provide COVID-19 vaccines to Veterans as quickly and safely as they can, based on CDC guidelines and available supply. Veterans are encouraged to sign up to stay informed about when they can get a COVID-19 vaccine at VA. Click here to learn more.

You can track the State's vaccination progress through the NYS COVID-19 Vaccine Tracker. The dashboard provides updates on the distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine including the number of doses received by the state, a breakdown of first and second doses, and the number of people who have received first and second doses in each region.

New York State is encouraging eligible New Yorkers to train to become vaccinators. If you are a licensed practical nurse, a dentist, an EMT, a medical or nursing student with at least a year of clinical experience, and more — then you may be eligible to take training to become a vaccinator and help New York administer COVID vaccines over the coming months. See how you can get involved here

Westchester County has developed a Public Service Announcement (in English and in Espanol/Spanish) regarding vaccine scams. Beware of COVID vaccine fraud. To help root out vaccination fraud or scams across the State, New York established a hotline that New Yorkers can call to report suspected fraud. It is a red flag if anyone is promising you the vaccine in exchange for payment. To make a report, call 1-833-VAX-SCAM (1-833-829-7226) or email STOPVAXFRAUD@health.ny.gov.

While the vaccination process is underway, all New Yorkers should continue to wear masks, practice social distancing and avoid small and large gatherings.

Please wear a mask. | Follow social distancing protocols (approximately 6 feet or 2 meters).
Wash hands often. Stay away from small and large gatherings.

Village of Mamaroneck Announcements

No FOGS Down the Drain

Fats, Oils, and Grease (F.O.G.) --- What Not to Put Down Your Drain!

You can help prevent blocked sewer lines, clogged equipment and sewage pump stations, and polluted water in Mamaroneck Harbor if you're careful about what you pour down the sink or flush in the toilet. Substances that should NEVER be poured down the drain or flushed include FATS, OILS, and GREASE (FOGs). They solidfy in pies and create a hard blockage. Much of the daily maintenance in the village sanitary sewer pipes is required because of solidified FOGs. To dispose of FOGs properly, collect them in any sealable jar (liked a used sauce jar) and dispose of it with your regular garbage.

Or better yet --- Small amounts of cooking oil can be soaked into a paper towel and placed in your compost when you recycle your food scraps!

How not to dispose of fats, oils and grease:

  • Don’t use hot water or detergents to rinse grease off of cookware, utensils, dishes or surfaces. These products only move the grease further down the line where they can cause problems in the sewer system.
  • Don’t pour fats, oils and grease down your garbage disposal unit. Garbage disposal units may break down food materials into smaller pieces, but they don’t prevent fats, oils and grease from going down the drain.
  • Don’t pour fats, oils and grease down the toilet. Protect the sewer lines in the bathroom: the toilet is not a trash can.

Report of Individual Impersonating WJWW Employee


From our friends and colleagues at Westchester Joint Water Works (WJWW) --- There has been a report of an individual impersonating a WJWW employee in Mamaroneck and requesting access to a home to check for discolored water or to assess some water quality related issue. Please be advised that all WJWW employees carry official ID and, in the majority of instances involving access to a home, are responding to a previously scheduled appointment. If you have reason to doubt the identity of a person presenting themselves as a WJWW employee, please contact our operations staff immediately at (914) 424-4371. 

And while we have not received any reports of individuals impersonating ConEdison employees, click here for the "Beware of Scammers" webpage from ConEdison.
