COVID-19 Vaccine

COVID-19 Vaccine

Please Note: Cornerstone Family Healthcare does not have any COVID-19 vaccine appointments available at this time. We will continue to update the community as soon as additional information becomes available.

Cornerstone Family Healthcare is proud to be an approved distributor of the COVID-19 vaccine. The vaccine is the most effective tool in slowing the spread COVID-19 and preventing people from developing serious illness.

Due to limited supply of the COVID vaccine from the federal government, it could take up to 14 weeks or longer for eligible New Yorkers to schedule their vaccine shot.​  More and more people will become eligible as the vaccine supply increases. While the vaccination process is underway, everyone should wear a mask, social distance and avoid small and large gatherings.

Who Can Get Vaccinated

Because the supply of COVID-19 vaccine in the United States is expected to be limited at first, CDC is providing recommendations to federal, state, and local governments about who should be vaccinated first. As more vaccines become available, they will be made available to more people within each priority group.

As of January 11, 2021, New Yorkers in Phase 1a and segments of Phase 1b are eligible for the vaccines. All vaccinations are by appointment only. 

CDC recommends that initial supplies of COVID-19 vaccine be allocated to healthcare personnel and long-term care facility residents. This is referred to as Phase 1a.

Phase 1b includes:

  • Frontline essential workers such as fire fighters, police officers, corrections officers, food and agricultural workers, United States Postal Service workers, manufacturing workers, grocery store workers, public transit workers, and those who work in the educational sector (teachers, support staff, and daycare workers.)
  • People aged 65 years and older because they are at high risk of hospitalization, illness, and death from COVID-19. People aged 65 years and older who are also residents of long-term care facilities should be offered vaccination in Phase 1a.

Please visit the New York State website for additional information on Phase 1a and Phase 1b eligibility.

Please Continue to Wear Your Facemask

It is important that we continue to follow these evidence-based practices until a large portion of the population is vaccinated to help slow the spread of the disease and to protect public health:

  • Wear a facemask.
  • Wash and sanitize your hands frequently.
  • Keep a distance of at least 6 feet from those not from your immediate household.
  • Limit gathering with others who are not in your immediate household.
