COVID-19 Vaccines Available at Johnson City Wegman’s
Wegman's Pharmacies are partnering with state and local governments to offer the COVID-19 vaccination to residents age 65 and older.
The announcement by the Rochester-based supermarket chain was made February 1 and listed select locations where shots would be administered by appointment.
In the company news release, Wegmans says with a limited supply available, select New York pharmacy locations are participating and as more vaccine becomes available, the plan is to expand the stores and populations selected to participate.
In the Southern Tier, the Johnson City store as well as Corning and Hornell are designated as participating sites while the Syracuse-area Wegmans in Fairmount, Dewitt and Auburn are participating.
All scheduling should be done online at wegmans.com/pharmacy. You do not need to have an online account with Wegmans to reserve a spot. Residents should have their insurance card in front of them when getting ready to schedule.
Those without computer access can call 1-800-207-6099 Monday-Friday from 8:30 a.m.- 5 p.m. Also have your insurance card in front of you when calling. Wegmans advises "This line will only be active when appointments are available."
A month ago, Weis Markets announced some of their pharmacies were offering COVID vaccines for residents age 65 and over. Stores on Rano Boulevard, Vestal, Day Hollow Road, West Corners and Robinson Street, Binghamton were offering shots.
Price Chopper/Market 32 pharmacies are carrying the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine at stores in Schenectady (2 locations), Clifton Park, Latham, Saratoga, Plattsburgh, Malta, Rome and New Hartford in New York.
The Price Chopper website said early February 5 that appointments were only available at the store at 1640 Eastern Parkway, Schenectady, Clifton Park and Latham.
As with the other store pharmacies, the vaccines are designated for those age 65 and older.
