Monroe County Executive Adam Bello and Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren announced today that the Community Based COVID-19 vaccine clinics in the city of Rochester will offer the Pfizer vaccine for 12 to 17 year old residents and the Johnson & Johnson vaccine for residents 18 years of age and older at all four locations this week. These locations are conveniently located in four neighborhoods in the city of Rochester and provide an ideal opportunity for families to be vaccinated together.
“Over the last several weeks, we have put a greater focus on bringing the vaccine closer to where people live and where they are going to be. This change in operations has been incredibly successful, particularly over the last week with the expanded eligibility of the Pfizer vaccine to 12 to 15 year old residents,” Bello says. “Our community based clinics in the city of Rochester provide a great opportunity for parents to bring their kids to a familiar location to get this lifesaving vaccine. I hope Rochester families will take advantage of this opportunity.”
“With our kids age 12 and up now eligible to be vaccinated, we closer to ending the pandemic than ever before. Now’s the time and these community clinics are the place to get you and your children this life-saving vaccine so we can recover stronger than ever and never look back. So please join me, get the vaccine and protect your circle,” added Mayor Warren.
