EYEWITNESS NEWS (WBRE/WYOU-TV) — Weis Markets began distributing the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine Thursday at its in-store pharmacies.
“I have multiple, multiple illnesses and I was thrilled to get it,” said Connie Cobosco, vaccine recipient.
Cobosco told Eyewitness News she was happy to come to the Nanticoke store to get the vaccine and the process was simple.
“Very easy. You walk in, you fill out your paperwork and you get your shot and you’re in and out of here in 20 minutes.”
Louis Csongeto also waited for his vaccine with no hassle.
“Basically, I’m an older person and whatever’s going to be, is going to be. But I figured I might as well and get the shots while they’re available.”
The vice-president of Weis Markets spoke in a statement on those who are eligible:
“Our pharmacies have received a limited quantity of Moderna COVID-19 vaccine and will begin immunizing on Thursday. Per Pennsylvania Health Department guidelines, we are prioritizing individuals 65 years or older and those with high-risk conditions for immunization appointments.”
In our area across northeastern and central Pennsylvania, you can find 22 Weis Markets pharmacies where the COVID-19 immunizations are available.
Locations include Berwick, Honesdale, Stroudsburg and Montoursville, along with several others.
Weis Markets says if you’re eligible for the vaccine and would like to schedule an appointment online, you can do so on Monday’s, Wednesday’s and Friday’s.
