  1. The office of the aging has a great program where they come to your home and give the vaccine to you. Take a look at the mayors newsletter which details how to make the appointment. You can also call the mayors help line or his office. I did this and I got it done. Good luck and stay safe

  2. My parents are in their 90s, and their kids all live hundreds of miles away, so the model of walking to a neighborhood pharmacy or driving to a mass vaccination site is not very workable. I really think either the individual towns, or the County, or the State of NY, or the Fed should have thought to come up with solutions as to how to facilitate vaccination of the oldest old who don’t happen to be living in senior housing but have instead chosen to age at home. NY is moving on beyond senior vaccinations to the next categories, and the helpless elderly are getting left behind. Ironic since the idea was to vaccinate the most vulnerable first. The taxing entities don’t have any trouble finding them at tax time–village/town taxes, Westchester County taxes, NY State taxes, Federal Taxes, but somehow during the Covid pandemic, the oldest old have become invisible . Government entities are pretending they don’t know who these people are or where they live, and pretending it is impossible to anticipate that they will struggle to get vaccinated. Hard to believe the USA somehow managed to win two World Wars, because right now it is looking like no one is capable of coordinating anything–oh wait, I forgot–it is the present day 90 and 100 year olds who brought us to victory there.

    1. I made inquiry on your behalf and I expect a resolution for people such as you who may not be ambulatory or cannot be assisted to attend a facility t get the innoculation. I do not have the capacity to attain your email as all comments are anonymous.

      If you would consider send me an email, I will await this program that was spoken about only yesterday, and when it is instituted, I believe in less that 3 weeks time throughout Westchester County, I will be able to advise you with respect to who to call and the process that will be engaged to service people with your extenuating circumstances. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and travail with us. Kindly Hezi. Direct email to eHezi@hush.com. If you prefer to leave a message on my cell phone, you are most welcome. The number is 1-914-512-8095. Kindly, Hezi

  3. I think it’s a joke, trying to make an appointment, I filled out the forms for Yonkers armory, when I went to submit, they asked me if I have insurance, they want Medicare number secondary insurance information, why ask for all the extra information, I have called numerous phone numbers to make appointments, they tell me go online to schedule appointment, but by the time I go back on line there’s no appointments available, very frustrating.

  4. Good morning, I’m 68 yrs old, living in Yonkers ZIP CODE 10710 . I’m hypertensive and a diabetic and I’m wondering where can I receive the Covid vaccination.

      YONKERS, NY — FEBRUARY 23, 2021 @ 2:32PM EST — Westchester County Board Legislator David Tubiolo (LD-14) issued the following outreach notice on February 23rd. It reads with all the information you need to make an appointment by telephone or by computer. The waiting time by telephone I learned on Wednesday was between 30 to 45 minutes in duration. Making an appointment with a computer would be faster, bit t may cause a lot f anxiety and frustration for those who do not know how to navigate the computer system they have at home. If necessary, and you know someone who can assist you by having the information about you that you trust and is knowledgable in using a computer, perhaps a child, likely an adult if you had children. If not, perhaps another relative.

      The INFO is below. Take a breath, be patient with yourself, and it will over time, even an hour in waiting time. Read a book, listen to music. Stay calm and relaxed. If you go through the process and you want to talk about it on radio, we operate a radio broadcast every Monday to Friday morning from 10am-12Noon. We spend a 1/2 hour with every guest. We can even allocate a full hour for you if you are comfortable with spending all that time speaking on the telephone with me. If you have the patience and the time, I assur you will relieve a lot of anxiety among others. I also understand you may be engaged in a project in the mornings. If you prefer to talk to me first rou are welcome to send me a notice by mail and we can make an appointment for you to call the broadcast if the time slot works for you. DIrect your email to eHezi@Hush.com . In case you are wondering, I celebrated my 71st birthday last month. Kindly, Hezi

      2. What do u expect from a POTUS who hides in the White House and has other people calling the shots-this from a guy who said there was NO VACCINE when he got into the White House Senior Center.
