Johnson & Johnson vaccine allows for new overnight vaccination appointments at Yankee Stadium
Night owls or those with different work schedules are now getting vaccinated whenever they have the chance in New York.
Bronx residents will be able to schedule an overnight appointment for the new Johnson & Johnson vaccine at Yankee Stadium.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced a pilot program for the new vaccine to be administered at all state-run mass vaccinations sites, including at Yankee Stadium.
Residents can now make their appointment for any time of the day.
Overnight appointments, specifically for the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, will begin at 8 p.m. Thursday until 7 a.m. the next day and continue from there.
The state will be receiving around 165,000 doses of the single-dose vaccine this week, a supply that will open up thousands of appointments.
The Pfizer vaccine will still be administered at Yankee Stadium in a separate area.
Those who were at Yankee Stadium today say they took whatever appointment was open.
“I guess any shot is better than no shot at all,” one woman said.
The Johnson & Johnson vaccine will also be available at pharmacies, federally qualified health centers and different counties.
Javits Center and the New York State Fair vaccination hub will also be going 24/7 on Friday.
Those who want to be vaccinated still need to be within the eligibility requirements.
