The town of Irondequoit is working with Lifespan of Greater Rochester to help book COVID-19 vaccine appointments for residents and provide transportation, if needed.

Anyone ages 50 and older can call 585-244-8400 to schedule a vaccine appointment. Lifespan provides free travel assistance to and from the appointment location for Irondequoit residents through iRide, the town’s senior transportation program.

“Lifespan is thrilled to partner with the town of Irondequoit to ensure that all older adults receive access to the vaccine,” said Ann Marie Cook, president and CEO. “We especially want to thank Supervisor Seeley for making this additional push to let residents of Irondequoit know that we can help with scheduling for an appointment.”
