Assemblyman Colton’s (D – Gravesend, Bensonhurst, Bath Beach, and Dyker Heights) office had arranged COVID vaccines through Rite Aid pharmacy for seniors who had encountered many obstacles in scheduling appointments which they were eligible for.
“Yesterday, March 29, 2021, was a very successful day for many vulnerable seniors. We were able to provide more than seventy COVID vaccine doses. A big thank you goes to Lina Chen, Director of Health Essentials, for providing us with her large ground floor easily accessible location and of course to Rite Aid Pharmacy for supplying the vaccines,” Colton stated.
“Since I, daily, expose myself, to so many public contacts, I was finally able to receive my COVID vaccine also. My staff was able to schedule another event of COVID vaccines, which will take place on April 23, 2021, by appointment only. The Rite Aid Pharmacy will provide a limited number of Pfizer vaccines. If you are in the age category and would like to put your name on the list for the COVID vaccine, then please contact my office by calling (718) 236-1598 and ask for Sarah,” Colton added.
