Syracuse, N.Y. - New York State has started the process of rolling out COVID-19 booster shots to all eligible residents.
Anyone who received the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine at least six months ago can get the booster so long as they're part of a certain group. Among those who can get their shots are people 65 or older, people between 50 and 64 years old with an underlying medical condition, and people between 18 and 64 years old with a high risk of exposure to COVID-19 due to their occupational or institutional setting.
There are already opportunities coming up to get a booster in Central New York. Wednesday, Kinney Drugs will be giving boosters at the OnCenter from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. Make your appointment here.
Wegmans and Price Chopper/Market 32 are making it convenient to get a booster, too. The supermarket chains say the shots are available at pharmacies located right inside of their stores. However, an appointment to get a booster shot is required.
You can make appointments for Wegmans, here. Book your appointment for Price Chopper/Market 32, here.
Customers who are getting a shot are asked to bring their COVID-19 vaccination record card with them or other proof of vaccination.
Anyone who received a Moderna or Johnson and Johnson COVID-19 vaccine can't get a booster shot yet.
