SELDEN, NY (OnSachem.com / OnTownMedia.com) — Dozens of senior citizens received COVID-19 vaccinations thanks to the help of Suffolk County Legislator Nick Caracappa, R-Selden, of the 4th District and Belle Mead Compounding Pharmacy in East Setauket.
Last week, pharmacists from Belle Mead vaccinated over 50 residents at St. Joseph’s Village in Selden, a senior citizen residential complex managed by Catholic Charities of Long Island. Caracappa coordinated with the pharmacy to have pharmacists on-site over two days to administer the Moderna vaccination.
“I was thrilled to be part of what was truly a community effort to get these folks vaccinated,” said Caracappa. “A special thank you goes to Ruby Masson, owner of Belle Mead Pharmacy and her friendly staff, Angela Cammarata, Service Coordinator for St. Joseph’s Village who arranged the appointment schedule for the residents, and Lynn Reddy from Catholic Charities for working collaboratively with my office to get this accomplished and help keep our senior population safe.”
The Fourth Legislative District Caracappa represents includes Centereach, Farmingville, Lake Ronkonkoma, Selden, and parts of Coram, Holbrook, Holtsville, and Port Jefferson Station.
