2 of the largest mass vaccination sites in the state set to open in NYC this month
Two of the largest mass vaccination sites are coming to New York City this month.
Medgar Evers College in Crown Heights is one of the two vaccination sites the Biden administration is teaming up with the state to get up and running. The other hub will be located at York College in Queens.
The plan is to vaccinate 3,000 people a day. The two sites will be ready the week of Feb. 24.
According to Gov. Andrew Cuomo, the goal is to make these vaccination sites more accessible to what he calls socially vulnerable communities.
Cuomo says the Biden administration will provide a special dosage allocation to these locations--separate from the state’s allocation.
He says a plan for more mass vaccination sites in upstate New York is in the works as part of the partnership.
