100-Year-Old World War II Veteran gets vaccineA 100-year-old World War II Veteran and resident of Westchester County was unable to get his COVID-19 vaccine at a local drug store chain due to documentation issues in verifying his identity as a New York State resident. This gentleman and his daughter came to the County Clerk's Office looking for assistance through the Court system. Upon learning the issues and the need for immediate action, our staff reached out to the Court and to the County Department of Emergency Services for assistance. With the assistance of the County Department of Emergency Services and the County and NYS Departments of Health, the gentleman was vaccinated at the County Center site.

The Court went to work on solving his identification issue caused by name variations in his proof documents.

The New York State National Guard at the Westchester County Center expedited the process and its members were thrilled to assist a veteran. After the gentleman received his vaccination, his daughter then sent the Clerk's staff a note stating, “Thank you many times over....Dad was treated like royalty," and sent us the picture attached to this post.

Here at the Westchester County Clerk's Office, we were honored that our office could play a small part in helping this 100-year-old World War II Veteran get his Covid-19 Vaccine. Special thanks to the Westchester County Department of Emergency Services, County and State Departments of Health, the New York State National Guard and Administrative Judge Kathie Davidson’s staff who expedited the process.
