COVID vaccine update

Brooklyn Pharmacy is a coronavirus vaccination location. This means you have the option to get vaccinated in your own community! Please check out the info below for important information on registering to get a vaccination appointment. You may not get an appointment the first time you try! This system is not ideal — please support your elder communities at this time.

Eligibility

Eligibility varies, but folks 65+ are now eligible. News regarding vaccine eligibility is updated frequently and subject to change. Please see the HealthMart vaccination schedule page to check your eligibility and search for a vaccine appointment.
