Bridgehampton: Wednesday, January 5th at The Children’s Museum of the East End located at 376 Bridgehampton-Sag Harbor Turnpike from 3pm-7pm – Vaccines: Pfizer 5yr-11yr Covid vaccines
Preregistration is necessary. All offerings are free of charge. Please text OLA for registration information: 844-795-0043
“We are pleased to partner with Northwell Health and EH Town leadership at the Montauk site where we will be offering Pfizer/Moderna vaccine boosters and flu vaccines,” said Minerva Perez, OLA’s Executive Director.
“We are committing all staff possible to these actions,” continued Minerva Perez. “The child vaccine event at the Children’s Museum is being administered by Stony Brook Southampton Hospital, in partnership with CMEE and BHCCRC.”
“OLA is developing support systems led by OLA team members, Wally Ramirez, Andres Espinosa, and Charles Escalante, to assist East End schools in their vaccine events to better connect all families to these critical actions. We have already supported three school districts in the administering of child vaccines at school locations and we will continue to offer our support and follow up as needed,” said Ms. Perez.
“Even as OLA’s team is fighting through its own Covid related challenges, we remain committed to the needs of our community to see that Covid vaccine access and education is available to all regardless of language ability, immigration status, or transportation challenges,” concluded Ms. Perez.
