18 More NY Community Based Vaccination Sites Coming Online Over the Upcoming Week

Governor Cuomo Announces 18 Community-Based Pop-Up Vaccination Sites Coming Online over the Next Week to Vaccinate 8,500 New Yorkers

As has been the norm thus far:
Vaccinations Are By Appointment Only; No Walk-ins

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced 18 community-based pop-up vaccination sites are coming online over the next week at houses of worship, community centers and gathering spaces as well as local businesses. These sites are expected to vaccinate 8,500 people throughout the week. Since January 15, more than 180 community-based pop-up sites have administered more than 69,000 first doses of the COVID-19 vaccine. As has been the case with previous pop-up sites, these sites will be re-established in three weeks to administer second doses if necessary. Vaccinations are by appointment only and walk-ins are not allowed.

“We are continuing to set up community-based pop-up sites across our state because we remain committed to making sure the vaccine is accessible for all New Yorkers,” Governor Cuomo said. “These sites have allowed us to reach our hard-hit communities and to address the skepticism around the vaccine, and they have been instrumental in making the vaccine distribution more equitable. Our collaboration with local leaders and organizations is proof of just how important these voices are in their respective communities, and we will continue to work with them until every New Yorker has access to the vaccine.”    

The establishment of many of these vaccination sites was made possible through partnerships with multiple public and private health care providers. Host sites and partner providers conduct outreach within their communities and work with community leaders and organizations to identify eligible New Yorkers and schedule vaccination appointments. The 18 sites being established over the next week are located at the addresses below:

This continued development of community-based ‘pop up’ vaccination sites furthers Governor Cuomo’s mandate of ensuring the fair and equitable distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine. In late 2020, the Governor announced the launch of New York’s Vaccine Equity Task Force chaired by Secretary of State Rossana Rosado, Urban League President & CEO Marc Morial, and HealthfirstPresident & CEO Pat Wang. Since its establishment, the Task Force has continued work to ensure vulnerable and underserved communities are not left behind by breaking down the barriers to vaccination and ensuring there is equitable distribution of the vaccine across the state.
