Starting Wednesday and continuing for a month, Suffolk County will open eight single-day COVID-19 vaccine clinics from West Babylon to Riverhead.

The continued vaccine push comes as Long Island positivity rates remain relatively low, but have increased over the past several days, according to the latest New York State data.

The seven-day Long Island positivity rate ticked up slightly from 2.46% on Sunday, to 2.54% on Monday, when there were 166 new confirmed COVID-19 cases in Nassau and 106 in Suffolk, according to Gov. Kathy Hochul’s office.

Two people in Suffolk and one in Nassau died Monday due to the virus.

The county will offer the Pfizer vaccine to those ages 5 and older at the following locations: Wednesday, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. at Pronto of Long Island, 128 Pine Aire Dr., Bay Shore; Friday, from noon to 4 p.m. at Mastic Fire House, 1080 Mastic Rd.; April 5, from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at Patchogue-Medford Library, 54-60 E. Main St., Patchogue; April 6, 13 and 20, from noon to 4 p.m. at Pronto of Long Island; April 22, from noon to 3:30 p.m. at West Babylon Library, 211 Rte. 109; and April 27, from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at Riverhead Library, 330 Court St.

“We urge every person who is eligible to receive a booster vaccine to get one as soon as possible,” Suffolk County Health Commissioner Dr. Gregson Pigott said in a news release. 

Medical practitioners and emergency medical services are on-site at each clinic to answer questions and tend to concerns. To make an appointment visit vax4.suffolkcountyny.gov or call 311.

Residents with appointments will have priority, but walk-ins are welcome up to a half-hour before closing time.
