Booking your COVID-19 Appointment at a Pharmacy

COVID-19 Immunization Program

To ensure fair access to all Islanders needing to be immunized and to prevent unnecessary wastage of vaccine doses, please only book your immunizations at ONE pharmacy location.

Who is eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine through a pharmacy?

Partner pharmacies are able to offer the Moderna SpikevaxTM vaccine (XBB formulation) and Pfizer-BioNTech ComirnatyTM (XBB formulation) to individuals 12 years of age and older if it has been at least 6 months since your last dose of COVID-19 vaccine or COVID-19 illness, whichever is shorter.
