Dear Friend:

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 (my annual free health and wellness fair) this year. I’m heartbroken over this development. However, since my Golden Gathering always draws a big crowd – well over 1,000 attendees – I’m putting your health, safety, and well-being first.

In lieu of the Golden Gathering, I – along with Mid-Hudson Cable – will be sponsoring a Drive-Thru Flu Shot Clinic on Saturday, October 3, from 9 a.m. to noon, at Columbia-Greene Community College 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, and individuals with health insurance are asked to bring their health insurance card.

The Columbia County Department of Health asks attendees to pre-register for this Drive-Thru Flu Shot Clinic. Visit and click on the link for the clinic at Columbia-Greene Community College. You can also call the Drive-Thru Influenza Clinic registration message line at (518) 828-3358, ext. 1310. Leave your name and phone number and a staff member will contact you.

I want you to stay safe and healthy! Be my guest on Saturday, October 3, at Columbia-Greene Community College for this Drive-Thru Flu Shot Clinic. And yes, my Golden Gathering will return in 2021, bigger and better than ever. If you have questions or would like additional information about this event, call my district office at (518) 371-2751, or email me at Thank you!

State Senator, 43rd District
