Two Free Vaccine Clinics at Community Events

Saturday’s Wobble on the Hudson; Tuesday’s National Night Out


Synergy will be on display this week in Peekskill as two free vaccine clinics come to town and are partnered with community events.  Saturday at Riverfront Green  Wobble on the Hudson kicks off at noon and a free COVID vaccine clinic is available from 2:30 to 6 p.m. On Tuesday, August 3, at the National Night Out at Pugsley Park, another free COVID vaccine clinic will be available from 5 to 7 p.m.

Saturday’s free event is a day-long dance party and social that includes classes from 12 to 3 along with line dancing until 7 p.m.   Capitalizing on the event where people will be participating in wellness through dance and fitness, #VAXUPWESTCHESTER will be administering Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson vaccines for those age 12 and older. 

#VAXUPWESTCHESTER will return to Peekskill for Tuesday’s event at Pugsley Park at 1038 Main Street as part of Peekskill’s Youth Bureau and Peekskill’s Police Department’s National Night Out event. Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson vaccine shots will be administered to anyone ages 12 and up.  Shots are free.  

Saturday’s Wobble on the Hudson is sponsored by the Fun Bunch Line Dance Club and  Orisha Wholeness, a group of wholeness facilitators promoting a healthy lifestyle to the community through dance, fitness, entrepreneurial and economic development. 

#VAXUPWESTCHESTER is an outgrowth of COVID Angels volunteer program created in the Town of Greenburgh during the pandemic. The second phase of the program, made possible in part by grants from UJA_Federation of New York and Westchester Community Foundation, aspires to compassionately and pointedly address vaccine hesitancy. The goal is to make sure all people who are eligible to receive a vaccine get one. Through an agreement with Ossining Volunteer Ambulance Corps, shots will be administered by members of the Corps.

Reasons why people vaccinate are:  

We vaccinate to reunite our grandparents with their grandchildren.We vaccinate to stop the spread.

We vaccinate so our children can return to school and play with their friends without fear or hesitation.

We vaccinate because it is safe, tested and available at no cost and available without prejudice to ALL American residents.

And we vaccinate because it means we can go back to doing all the things we love to do unencumbered!
