Javits Center 24-hour vaccination pilot program comes to an end

Coronavirus update for NYC
WEST SIDE, Manhattan (WABC) -- The transformation of the Javits Center mega-vaccination site into a 24-hour operation turned out to be a short-lived experience.

The state health department says round-the-clock operations were only intended as a three-day pilot program that started last weekend and ended on Wednesday as planned.



State officials say during that time 41,000 vaccinations were administered - between Pfizer doses during the day, and Johnson & Johnson overnight.

The Health Department says it will continue to expand operations as vaccine supply allows.
