Coronavirus NY: 11 pop-up vaccine sites coming to areas with lower vaccination rates

Coronavirus Update for New York
NEW YORK (WABC) -- Eleven new pop-up vaccine sites will open in areas of New York where the vaccination rate is lower than the statewide average.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo made the announcement on Monday.

All 11 sites will be open for walk-in vaccinations on a first-come, first-served basis.

New York State will expand on the program and open additional sites in the coming weeks.

"Our progress on vaccinations has been instrumental in making it possible to reopen our economy and lift many of the restrictions, but the vaccination rate has slowed dramatically and we need to focus on the places that have low vaccination rates," Cuomo said. "Pop-up sites have been critical in helping us reach more New Yorkers with the vaccine, and with these 11 new sites we are redeploying our resources and working with local health departments across the state to target the areas that continue to lag on vaccinations. The vaccine is safe and effective -- and if we want to defeat this virus, we need to get more New Yorkers vaccinated as quickly as possible."
