Neighborhood Notes on June Primary Deadlines, Vaccination Card Fraud, Fordham University Discounts


Latest Updates on Vaccine Eligibility

The New York State Department of Health has made COVID-19 vaccines available for free to all individuals aged 12 and older residing in the United States. Vaccination appointments can be scheduled at various locations, including pharmacies, health departments, clinics, and Federally Qualified Health Centers. Walk-in appointments are also encouraged at mass vaccination sites.

The Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson/Janssen vaccine fact sheets for recipients and caregivers are available for reference. Homebound New Yorkers can request in-home vaccinations through a provided interest form.

To help incentivize vaccination, there are initiatives such as free game tickets to baseball games at Yankee Stadium and Citi Field for those receiving the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, as well as free food offers at Shake Shack for vaccinated individuals.

For those interested in voting, the June 22 primary election deadlines are listed, and there is information about a flea market opening at Fordham Plaza, as well as apprenticeship opportunities for Boilermakers and Wood, Wire & Metal trades.

Fordham University is offering a Good Neighbor Initiative, providing financial assistance to adult learners living in certain neighboring zip codes around its Bronx campus.
