Just a friendly reminder for those out there who haven’t scheduled their COVID-19 vaccination yet: DO IT NOW!!! As of this post’s publish time, there are thousands of appointments available — including over 20,000 slots at the Brooklyn residents-only Medgar Evers College site. There’s a plethora of ways to make an appointment:
- For the NY State-run vaccination sites (Medgar Evers, Javits, etc) or call: 833-NYS-4-VAX
- For City-run vaccination sites or call: 877-VAX-4NYC
- Not to mention all the nearby pharmacies that may have shot appointments available.
- AND NYC has expanded their walk-in vaccination program to people 50 and older.
According to the city’s COVID-19 Vaccine Data site, the 11201 zip code has doing pretty good — 64% of residents over 18 have received at least 1 dose so far, and 39% fully vaccinated. Across all of Brooklyn, though, only 40% have received at least 1 dose, so spread the good word about vaccinating! Tell your neighbors, your friends, random people you meet, even cold-call local stores and businesses! DON’T HESITATE — VACCINATE!
