First, we’d like to thank you for everything you have done over the last year to protect yourselves during the pandemic. Your vigilance in following our safety protocols, wearing masks properly, and staying socially distant is the best way to keep each other safe. Our top priority is always Associate and customer safety as COVID continues to be a challenge for our communities.
Vaccine administration is underway and we’re committed to keeping you updated on how Village is working with our national, state and local leaders to administer vaccines and how it impacts you, and in particular when vaccinations may be available to our Village family.
As of April 19th, everyone over the age of 16 is now eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico.

PLEASE DO NOT contact your ShopRite Pharmacy or Pharmacy Director David Lee, as they are working around the clock to manage our vaccination program and will not be able to answer individual questions. Instead, there is a dedicated email address for vaccine-related Associate questions to make it easier for our teams to answer you quickly:
Last but not least, we would like to give a heartfelt “thank you” to all of our dedicated pharmacy teams and our stores for supporting our vaccine effort. You are truly providing an essential service to our communities, living our vision of Helping Families Live Better, and there is no doubt that you are saving countless lives.
We thank you for your patience while our teams work around the clock to get this done. We will continue to provide updates as the situation changes, and again, the text system is the best way to receive this info first. In the meantime, you can keep COVID-19 at bay by wearing masks properly, washing your hands, and staying six feet apart! BE SAFE, BE SMART & BE KIND!
