TruCare Pharmacy is proud to serve our community as your local COVID-19 Vaccination Site! CLICK HERE to schedule an appointment!
We are offering the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines (1st, 2nd and Boosters shots). To be eligible patients must be 12y or older (Pfizer) / 18y or older (Moderna). Minors must present identification to verify that they are at least 12 years of age or have a parent/guardian attest on their behalf. For patients aged 12-15 an adult must be present to accompany the minor. For minors 16-17 adult consent may be given in person or over the phone during the time of the appointment.
Types of identification which can be presented include a driver’s license, birth certificate, US passport, permanent resident card, Certificate of Naturalization, or consulate ID.
How to prepare for your 1st vaccine:
1. Complete the required NYS Vaccine form and bring your confirmation to your appointment.
2. Bring your ID.
3. Note that you are required to wait 15 minutes after the vaccine for observation. During this time please sign up for V-safe. V-safe provides health check-ins and allows you to report any side effects of the vaccine to the CDC.
4. Be sure to get plenty of rest the day before. Ensure that you are hydrated and have eaten before the appointment.
5. Remember to wear your mask and preferrably a short sleeves shirt for easy administration!
Once your first shot has been administered you will receive a vaccination card with the location, date and type of vaccine you recieved. Keep this card safe as it will be needed for your next appointment. Your next appointment will be scheduled for 3 weeks later (Pfizer vaccine) or for 4 weeks after (Moderna vaccine). An email confirmation will be sent with the next appointments date and time.
Remember that it takes about two weeks before the vaccine begins to take full effect. Keep wearing a mask, washing your hands and keep a 6 feet distance at all times. Encourage others in your family and community to get vaccinated. Lets lessen the severity of the virus and stop the spread of COVID-19!

Please note that we are doing everything we can to ensure that everyone who wants a vaccine is able to receive one.
TruCare family thanks you for your patience.
