Ten Acres Pharmacy offers COVID vaccine

Sonya Frausto is more than busy. She said she’s doing about 150 vaccinations a week. She has been guaranteed enough supply to do the second shots when they come due.

She has had Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines. Before the Johnson & Johnson vaccine was suspended, she gave about 100 injections. “It’s a bummer that it’s been suspended,” said Frausto, adding that she has plenty of the Moderna vaccine.

“We’ve exhausted our wait list with the extra vaccine at the end of each day,” she said. “Most days we have two to three extra, so we call people who have appointments.”

SCNA board member Kathy Les shared her experience at the pharmacy when the pharmacist had nine extra doses at the end of the day. Kathy’s daughter, Maggie Thomas, went next door to Taylor’s Market and told customers vaccinations were available.

Frausto said she takes appointments by phone, “because people like to talk to a human,” but online appointments are also available.
