Vaccination Site at the Former Kodak Hawkeye Location

Federal and state governments have established a permanent vaccine site at the former Kodak Hawkeye parking lot at 1345 St. Paul St., Rochester. This site is open to any eligible resident of Monroe County and it will help ensure that communities of color and other residents from disadvantaged neighborhoods who have been at the back of the line for vaccines, will be first in line at this site.
