There have been published reports across the country on the difficulties some residents — especially seniors without computer skills and non-English speakers — have had in trying to schedule COVID-19 vaccination appointments.
Now, members of the East Village Neighbors Community Group are lending a hand locally ... volunteering to help eligible residents navigate the appointment websites and sign up for their vaccinations.
East Village Neighbors are also offering assistance for Chinese speakers.

East Village Neighbors — a group of local volunteers — formed at the onset of the pandemic last March. They helped establish the East Village Neighbors Fridge outside S'MAC on First Avenue and 12th Street.
