ROCKVILLE CENTRE, Long Island (WABC) — Small, independent pharmacies across Long Island are getting ready to receive the coronavirus vaccine.

Mary Vukadin, who works at Rockville Centre Pharmacy, has been coordinating weekly with federal and state officials.


“It’s been a lot of work,” she said. “We are on at least five to six conference calls to coordinate the work between the CDC, the government.”

Vukadin said the pharmacy doesn’t know how many doses of the vaccine it will receive, which is typical of all pharmacies and hospitals waiting for the vaccine.
