Starting in January, the Greek Orthodox Church of the Hamptons will become a vaccination site operated in partnership with Stony Brook Southampton Hospital. It replaces the Parrish Hall vaccination site near the hospital.
Moderna shots and boosters will be available on Tuesdays from noon to 6 p.m. for people ages 18 and up. Pfizer shots and boosters will be given on Thursdays from noon to 6 for the same age group, with boosters available for those 16 and up.
A hospital spokeswoman said Thursday that the change was made in order to accommodate more vaccine appointments — up to 600 per day at the church, an increase from the 200 appointments available at the Parrish Hall each day. It is also expected to ease the traffic for the drive-through test site at the hospital.
The Greek Orthodox Church of the Hamptons is at 111 St. Andrews Road in Southampton. Appointments for vaccines are required and can be made online via the hospital's online scheduling tool.
