Attention Local 1500 members,

We have been working hard to get our essential members access to the Covid-19 vaccine.  So far we have been successful working with the Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone’s office.  As of today they have up to 128 doses available for Local 1500 members this week. Please see the following requirements:

1. You are a current member of Local 1500.
2. You live or work in Suffolk County.
3. You are available this Thursday (2/4) and Friday (2/5) between 4pm and 6pm.

If you are eligible based on all three points above, you must email stopthevirus@ufcw1500.org to request an appointment. You must provide your full name, store name and number where you work, and a phone number where you can be reached directly with appointment information. If we are unable to reach you we will have to reach out to the next member on the list.  These limited number of appointments will be on a first-come first-served basis and will come to us without any real structure.  Please be advised that we will be putting out emails like this every time we have doses made available to our members so that we can help guide you through the process.

You should be aware that we have been working with all municipalities throughout our jurisdiction, either directly or indirectly, to seek available Covid-19 vaccines for our members.  For today it is in Suffolk County, but hopefully this will grow in the coming days and weeks.  As soon as we have any other information about available vaccines anywhere we will let you know.

Stay safe and healthy!
