Please be advised that the Herkimer Office of the Aging has FREE COVID TEST KITS available to any Herkimer County Resident. The test kits are located at 109 Mary Street Herkimer in the Lobby of the Department of Motor Vehicle Building. These test kits will expire in March 2022. NYS has extended the expiration date. Please do not refer to the expiration date on the box, as that is inaccurate.

· Households can now order four rapid Covid tests for free at CovidTests.gov.

· Orders will start shipping next week, just days before families gather for the Christmas holiday.

Please consider getting your flu shot and the new updated COVID booster. If you have any questions, call Kathy Fox at 315-867-1121.
