ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — Appointments are now available for the new COVID-19 mass vaccination site in Rochester.
The site is in the former Kodak Hawkeye Parking lot at 1345 St. Paul Street. The Rochester site is one of four state-FEMA vaccination sites across the state.
“These four sites in Buffalo, Rochester, Albany and Yonkers are giving initial priority for appointments to New Yorkers living in areas with low vaccination rates and high COVID positivity rates, and I encourage everyone in these regions who is eligible to make an appointment quickly,” Gov. Andrew Cuomo said in a release.
Before the site opens up to all those eligible, it will first only take appointment for those living in areas with higher infection rates. After one week, appointments at each site will then be made available to all residents. Locally, those who are eligible to get the vaccine and reside in the following zip codes are qualified for the mass vaccination site:

The governor’s office has said the state plans to open more mass vaccination sites throughout New York as the vaccine becomes more available.
