To the editor:

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, and because your health, safety, and well-being are my top priority, we unfortunately won’t be holding the Golden Gathering this year.

In lieu of the Golden Gathering, I — along with Mid-Hudson Cable — will be sponsoring a Drive-Thru Flu Shot Clinic 9 a.m.-noon Oct. 3 at Columbia-Greene Community College (CGCC) in Hudson. This Drive-Thru Flu Shot Clinic is for the insured and uninsured, will provide free flu shots for individuals without health insurance, and will be administered by professionals from the Columbia County Department of Health.

Every possible protocol and precaution will be followed to ensure the health, safety, and well-being of everyone getting a flu shot. All attendees will receive free high-quality tote bags filled with helpful information regarding health care programs and policies. Free flu shots for the uninsured are being provided courtesy of Mid-Hudson Cable, individuals with health insurance are asked to bring their health insurance card.

The Columbia County Department of Health asks attendees to pre-register. Visit
