COVID-19 Vaccination Efforts at Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen

07.12.21 | Food for the Soul

Since the COVID-19 vaccines became accessible to the general public in New York City earlier this year, we at Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen have been working with several community partners to provide our guests, volunteers, staff members, and community members with access to the COVID-19 vaccines.  

We’ve partnered with Project Renewal, the Ryan Chelsea Community Health Center, and Daybreak Health to offer vaccines to our community. Currently, Daybreak is at the Soup Kitchen three days a week to answer questions and provide the Pfizer vaccine for anyone who requests it.  

At the Soup Kitchen, we strive for equal access to important resources, like the COVID-19 vaccine, for our guests and for all New Yorkers. By partnering with these community-based organizations, we’ve been able to provide the vaccine to New Yorkers who may otherwise not have access to it.  

“Thanks to our partnership with Daybreak, Project Renewal, and Ryan Chelsea, our guests know that they have access to the vaccine when they are ready for it,” Michael Ottley, Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen’s Chief Operating Officer said. “They’re helping to make sure that anyone who wants the vaccine is able to get it.”  

Pfizer vaccines are available to anyone in New York City, so if you haven’t yet received your shot and want to learn more, stop by the Soup Kitchen on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, or Thursdays from 10AM-2PM.
