A new mass Covid19 vaccination site will open on Wednesday March 3 at the Old Kodak Hawkeye parking lot on St Paul and Avenue E in Rochester, NY.
This site was chosen for it’s accessibility by public transportation.
Eligible residents of the city of Rochester can now make an appointment to get vaccination next week.
According to Gov. Cuomo, early registration is limited to certain zip codes to address disparities in our community.
Those zip codes are:
“COVID impacted communities of color at much higher rate, and it exposed the inequalities that have existed in our nation’s health care system for decades,” Gov. Cuomo said Wednesday. “From day one we have made the fair and equitable distribution of the vaccine a top priority, but two issues still exist, especially in our Black and Brown communities – accessibility and skepticism.”
All people being vaccinated need to be eligible, meaning you should be either age 65 or older, have an underlying condition or co-morbidity, or otherwise be on the list of people included in the COVID-19 vaccination Phase 1b.
