Governor Cuomo Announces 11 New Pop-Up Vaccination Sites to Serve Areas with Lower Vaccination Rates

Governor Cuomo Announces 11 New Pop-Up Vaccination Sites to Serve Areas with Lower Vaccination Rates

Sites to Open in Communities Where Vaccination Rate Is Well Below State Average

All Sites Open for Walk-in Vaccinations on a First Come, First Served Basis

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced 11 new pop-up vaccination sites will open in areas where zip code data shows the vaccination rate is significantly lower than the statewide average. 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," Governor 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."

Today's announcement builds on New York's commitment to bring the vaccine to communities across the state through pop-up vaccination sites. Since January 15, more than 250 community-based pop-up sites have administered more than 90,000 first doses of the COVID-19 vaccine.

The COVID-19 Vaccine Tracker Dashboard is available to update New Yorkers on the distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine. The New York State Department of Health requires vaccinating facilities to report all COVID-19 vaccine administration data within 24 hours; the vaccine administration data on the dashboard is updated daily to reflect the most up-to-date metrics in the state's vaccination effort.

New Yorkers who suspect fraud in the vaccine distribution process can now call 833-VAX-SCAM (833-829-7226) toll-free or email the state Department of Health at [email protected]. Hotline staff will route complaints to the appropriate investigative agencies to ensure New Yorkers are not being taken advantage of as the State works to vaccinate the entire eligible population.
