County providing free COVID-19 boosters
Free Pfizer bivalent COVID-19 booster vaccinations are being available through the Monroe County Department of Public Health.
The Pfizer bivalent booster is available to individuals 12 and older and whose last COVID-19 vaccination was at least two months ago.
“The bivalent booster vaccine adds an important layer of protection, especially for individuals who are most at risk for severe side effects from COVID-19,” Public Health Commissioner Dr. Michael Mendoza said in a news release. “As we head into the cooler months, I strongly encourage all eligible individuals to get a shot.”
Dates and locations include:
Friday at the Cameron Community Ministries, 48 Cameron St., Rochester, from 11 a.m. to 1:45 p.m.;
Saturday near the Roundhouse Pavilion, Genesee Valley Park off Elmwood Avenue, from noon to 2:45 p.m.;
Mondays and Wednesdays at the Monroe County Fleet Center, 145 Paul Rd.
Appointments are required and can be made on the county website.
“While the new vaccine is widely available from pharmacies and health care providers throughout the county, we want to make it as easy as possible for everyone who is eligible to get the booster,” County Executive Adam Bello said.
