Island Drug, in Oak Har­bor, has hun­dreds of vac­cine appoint­ments avail­able each day online for eli­gi­ble recip­i­ents. Sign­ing up is easy, and receiv­ing the vac­cine is free.
Island Drug has all three brands of vac­cine — the one-and-done John­son & John­son, the Pfiz­er which is approved for any­one 16 and old­er, and the Moderna.
To some extent, it is pos­si­ble to choose which to receive. See their web­site for more infor­ma­tion and to sign up at https://islanddrug.com/pages/covidvaccine.
If you’re eli­gi­ble to get the vac­cine and able to trav­el off-island to get it, you can do fel­low islanders a favor by increas­ing our pop­u­la­tion’s immu­ni­ty and leav­ing on-island vac­cines avail­able for whom going off-island is a hardship.
