A large number of vaccine appointments for the coming days have opened up at Medgar Evers College site in Crown Heights and at Walgreens Pharmacies in the area.
The appointments opened on Wednesday, after a number of days that there were no availabilities. Some appointments are available as soon as this week. Others are open in the beginning of April.
The mass vaccination site is located in Medgar Evers College at 231 Crown Street in Crown Heights. All New Yorkers age 60 or above, as well public-facing essential workers from governmental and nonprofit entities will be eligible. This includes teachers and in-person instructors.
In addition, any individual with underlying health conditions are eligible to receive a vaccine as well. Among the conditions that make one eligible are a BMI higher than 30 kg/m2, which even applies to people who are slightly overweight from a medical standpoint, but otherwise fit.
Residents who are 60 or older, as well as teachers and selected essential workers, can receive their vaccine at any Walgreens pharmacy as well.
