The highly contagious Delta variant is driving new infections and hospitalizations. If you are fully vaccinated, it is unlikely that you will get very sick or hospitalized. The Charles B. Wang Community Health Center encourages individuals who are 12 and older to get the COVID-19 vaccine.
Protect yourself and your loved ones, call (718) 490-7165 today and get vaccinated today.
The Charles B. Wang Community Health Center (CBWCHC) continues to require masks and social distancing for all patients, visitors, and staff to ensure everyone’s safety and follow CDC’s guidelines for healthcare settings.
The Health Center continues to offer COVID-19 vaccines to our patients and community members at the Health Center’s Vaccination Centers in Flushing, Queens and Lower Manhattan.
