Roosevelt Island Daily News

Everything with vaccine distribution is a little hairy now, but with the Biden/Harris administration in charge, some order takes shape.

That’s good news, especially for Roosevelt Island, where Duane Reade, 425 Main Street, plans giving shots, starting next weekend.

How do I sign up?

You’ve got two ways.

  • Sign up at the Pharmacy Department onsite, right now. This gets you on their list, and if all goes well, you’ll be contacted at mid-week for a weekend appointment. The folks on duty are helpful and well-informed.
  • On Tuesday, fire up your browser and go to wallgreens.com/covid19vac. You’ll need to follow up from there by logging into or creating an account.

Neither method has an advantage over the other, and there’s no problem doing both.
