Suffolk County Legislator Anker recently presented proclamations to two local pharmacies, Echo Pharmacy in Miller Place and Heritage Chemists Pharmacy in Mount Sinai, to thank the owners and their employees for assisting in New York State and Suffolk County’s COVID-19 vaccination distribution efforts to reach local residents.
“Echo Pharmacy and Heritage Chemists Pharmacy have been an important local resource for our residents to get vaccinated,” said Legislator Anker. “My office coordinated directly with the pharmacists to help vaccinate our residents, particularly our seniors, who are among the most vulnerable to the COVID-19 virus. The efforts of healthcare providers like Echo Pharmacy and Heritage Chemists Pharmacy have greatly assisted Suffolk County and New York State in their COVID-19 vaccination efforts. I am grateful for their partnership.”
“As an essential service to our community, we at Heritage Chemists Pharmacy have remained open throughout the pandemic to continue providing personalized care to our friends and neighbors,” said Heritage Chemists Pharmacy Owner MaryJo Bosio. “We are proud to have been able to offer the COVID-19 vaccine, masks, sanitizers, and other cleaning products to our community during this challenging time. Give us a call if you’d like to schedule a vaccination appointment, booster shot, COVID PCR test or for all of your pharmacy needs, including free delivery.”
“Echo Pharmacy is honored to serve our community,” said Echo Pharmacy Owner Bryan Mccutcheon. “We strive to keep everyone healthy and safe. Call us to make an appointment if you’d like to get the vaccine or are in need of a booster shot.”
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Echo Pharmacy and Heritage Chemists Pharmacy distributed COVID-19 vaccines through their locations, prioritizing inoculating seniors in the community. Echo Pharmacy was able to expand their distribution efforts and offer remote vaccinations at residents’ homes who were homebound due to age and/or ability. Due to the efforts and contributions of Echo Pharmacy and Heritage Chemists Pharmacy, Suffolk County has now reached a fully vaccinated rate of over 63%. Currently, Echo Pharmacy is offering Moderna COVID-19 vaccines and Heritage Chemists Pharmacy is offering Moderna and John & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines, booster shots and COVID-19 PCR testing.
