NEW CITY, NY – Refuah Health Center, Good Samaritan Hospital, a member of the Westchester Medical Center Health Network (WMCHealth), and the Rockland County Office for the Aging partnered to vaccinate 280 seniors from the Office the Aging’s Senior COVID-19 Vaccine Waitlist:

80 seniors were vaccinated on Friday, February 26 at Good Samaritan Hospital in Suffern. 200 seniors will be vaccinated on Monday, March 1 at the Rockland County Fire Training Center.

“I want to give a special acknowledgment to Refuah as I know they have reached out to many community groups across Rockland and gotten folks vaccinated,” said County Executive Ed Day. “They did tremendous work during our measles outbreak where county-wide over 30,000 MMR shots were given. They are true community partners who know how to get shots into arms.”

Refuah Health Center reached out to and vaccinated eligible individuals at these locations:

Suffern Community Center (in cooperation with the Suffern Mayor’s Office)
Centro De Amigos
Rockland Fire Training Center (in cooperation with the Office of Aging)
Yeshiva Spring Valley Schools
Horizons of Wurtsburo (Sullivan County)
Esther Gitlow Towers Senior Housing Center
Hyenga Lake Senior Housing in Spring Valley
Konbit Neg Lakay
Yeshiva of Greater Monsey
Dunkin Donuts of Suffern

“Together we are making progress. As of Sunday, February 28th, 14.3% of Rockland residents have received their first dose of vaccine. For those still searching, please be patient. We want to get you vaccinated, and we will, as soon as we have the vaccine needed to do so,” concluded County Executive Day.

Rep. Mondaire Jones on Build Back Better Act

Published

on

Congressman Mondaire Jones (D-NY) released the following statement:

“Today is an historic day for our nation, and for the great people of Westchester and Rockland Counties. Thanks to the leadership of progressives—who insisted on passing not just the bipartisan infrastructure bill, but also the larger Build Back Better Act—the House passed the most significant investment in our nation and our people in more than half a century.

The bill will guarantee that high-quality child care is affordable for every family in America; save the planet from climate catastrophe while creating millions of good-paying, union jobs; expand Medicare to include hearing; continue to cut child poverty in half through an extension of the expanded Child Tax Credit; make an historic investment in housing affordability; lift the cap on the State and Local Tax deduction that has unjustly burdened working families in Westchester and Rockland; and so much more.

I’m especially proud that this bill contains key provisions that I led the fight to secure: universal child care and an increase in the SALT deduction cap to $80,000.

This victory is a testament to the strength and tenacity of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, of which I’m proud to be a Deputy Whip, and which held the line throughout this process to ensure we passed a bill that meets this unprecedented moment of overlapping crises.

We in the House have done our job, and now our colleagues in the Senate must do theirs. I look forward to President Biden making good on his promise to secure 51 votes for the Build Back Better Act in the Senate expeditiously so we can get this bill onto his desk and begin delivering the change people in Westchester, Rockland, and across America need and deserve. The American people are counting on us to deliver, and we must do so without delay.”
