Douglaston Brings COVID Vaccine to Staten Island Complex

Douglaston Development, city agencies and the Joan & Alan Bernikow JCC of Staten Island launched an initiative to vaccinate residents at Douglaston’s affordable senior housing development, Seaview C Senior Housing, in Staten Island’s Todt Hill section. At least 75 residents at the 161-unit Seaview C were slated to receive the Johnson & Johnson single-dose COVID-19 vaccine on Thursday’s, the initiative’s first day.

““Access to public transportation can be limited throughout Staten Island, so it became clear to our team that the best path to help our residents get vaccinated was to bring the vaccine directly to them,” said Russell Lang, SVP at Douglaston Development. 

This is the second significant effort by staff at Douglaston and Clinton Management, its property management affiliate, to help Seaview C residents through the pandemic. Last spring and summer, building staff hand-delivered multiple meals per week, provided by the city’s Office of Emergency Management, to residents.
