(Tuesday, April 13, 2021) On Saturday, April 10th I was joined by partners in government, the City Department of Recreation and Human Services Commissioner Daniele Lyman-Torres and other community partner representatives with the goal of encouraging all city residents to get vaccinated.
I am pleased to announce that over the next three weeks, residents aged 16 and over who live in the following zip codes: 14604, 14605, 14606, 14607, 14608, 14609, 14610, 14611, 14613, 14614, 14615, 14619, 14620, 14621, 14622, can access COVID-19 vaccination appointments at one of four neighborhood PODs. Vaccination clinics will take place Thursdays through Sundays on the dates and at the locations listed in the table below.
I want to thank Monroe County, our local healthcare providers and our faith and community-based organizations for helping us launch these vaccination clinics inside our underserved city neighborhoods. The vaccines are highly effective and safe and I encourage every city resident to make an appointment as soon as possible so that we can protect our circles and emerge from this pandemic safer and healthier…
Appointments can be scheduled by visiting monroecounty.gov, by calling (585) 753-5555 or through the following Community Based Organizations: United Way of Greater Rochester; Ibero American Action League; Lifespan, Person Centered Housing Strategies; Refugees Helping Refugees; and Community Health Worker Association.
