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 keeping up with vaccine appointment availability, TurboVax and NYC Vaccine List have been useful, as well as the CDC’s VaccineFinder.

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!

    Thank you! I plan on calling Peas & Pickles to start.

    I’ll also add that PS8 students will soon be attending school 5 days a week. So if you work at, have students at, ever walk by, live anywhere near, or even ever think about PS8, please do as Qfwfq says!

    Hear, hear, “Qfwfq”. Brooklyn needs to do much better if we ever want to get past this.
