Have you been unable to get a vaccine appointment? | Letter

Submitted by Kirman Taylor

We are trying to get a handle on how many Lopezians, age 65-plus, were unable to get a COVID appointment for any of the upcoming sites (LIP, SJ Pub Health, or National Guard). The pharmacy must order this weekend and I am not sure if there is still a need for the age 65-plus phase.

Please ask around and tell me what you hear. If we get an allocation and don’t use it for seniors within 7 days (we aren’t allowed to go out of the Phase dictated by the state) — then the state takes away the vaccine we have and also dings our future ordering priority. I need as accurate an idea as possible.

Do we still have 100 folks age 65-plus needing vaccine?

Please send an email message to info@lopezislandpharmacy.com. Do not call the pharmacy.
