Governor Cuomo Announces First Five Community Vaccination Kits Deployed to NYCHA Housing Developments

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced the first five community vaccination kits have been deployed to NYCHA housing developments across New York City. These sites bolster New York State’s efforts to equitably distribute the COVID-19 vaccine in communities that are underserved by traditional healthcare institutions. The sites are strictly limited to eligible NYCHA residents. Residents can make appointments by contacting Somos, the state’s partner organization, by calling 1-833-SOMOSNY.

“We have one priority and one priority alone – getting shots into arms – and as we continue our work to expand the network of vaccination sites, it’s critical to make sure the vaccine is distributed fairly and equitably,” Governor Cuomo said. “Getting the vaccine to New Yorkers who are underserved by traditional health care institutions or living in health care deserts is a top priority, and these sites in NYCHA housing bring us a step closer to that goal. New York doing its part in getting the vaccine distributed quickly and fairly, but we need the federal government to step up and increase the supply. With We have come too far and been through too much to finally see the light at the end of the tunnel, only to be stymied by a slow federal distribution process.”

The five sites for eligible NYCHA residents with appointments are located at the addresses below:

Bronx: West Tremont Avenue-Sedgwick Avenue Area, 200 West Tremont Ave., Bronx, NY 10453

Brooklyn: Stuyvesant Gardens II, 150 Malcolm X Blvd. Brooklyn, NY 11221

East Harlem: 307 East 116 St., New York, NY 10029

Queens: International Tower 90-20 170 St., Queens, NY 11432

Staten Island: 230 Broad St., Staten Island, NY 10304
