Kinney Drugs to offer vaccine for those age 75 and older

Posted

This week, all New York Kinney pharmacies will receive initial doses of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine to administer to those age 75 and older only. Appointments will be available at all Kinney pharmacies beginning Thursday, Jan. 14.

By New York State mandate,, Kinney pharmacists will be able to vaccinate only people age 75 and older, by appointment only. In addition, eligible people must complete New York State’s mandated vaccination forms and schedule their vaccination appointments online.

“Since the onset of the pandemic, it has been Kinney’s top priority to be there for our communities to provide the medications, supplies, and care they need,” said Rebecca Bubel, R.Ph. President of Kinney Drugs.

“For several weeks, we have been providing drive-through COVID testing in many of our pharmacies, and we are proud that our Kinney pharmacists are now part of the vaccination solution. As we have since 1903, our employee-owners remain 100% committed to supporting our communities on the front lines and will help bring this pandemic under control.”
