Governor Cuomo Announces Two New Vaccination Sites in New York City

Empire State Building Observatory to Host Vaccination Site from Friday, June 11 through Sunday, June 13 - First 100 People to Get Vaccinated to Receive Free Ticket to Empire State Observatory

College of Staten Island to Host Site from Friday, June 11 through Thursday, June 17 - Site to Participate in 'Vax & Scratch' Program Providing Lottery Tickets for Prizes Up to $5 Million

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced two new vaccination sites will come online in New York City on June 11. The Empire State Building Observatory site, established in partnership with SOMOS Community Care, will operate from Friday, June 11 to Sunday, June 13, and the first 100 individuals who get vaccinated at the site will receive a free ticket to the Empire State Observatory. Additionally, the College of Staten Island site, established in partnership with Northwell Health, will operate from Friday, June 11 to Thursday, June 17, and will participate in the State's 'Vax & Scratch' Program. Based on demand, sites may be extended beyond this initial timeframe.

"Our creative vaccine site locations and incentive programs have succeeded in getting more New Yorkers to come in and roll up their sleeve, and we are continuing this creative approach with these two new sites in New York City," Governor Cuomo said. "Every shot in the arm brings us one step closer to defeating COVID, and if you still need to get vaccinated I encourage you to do that as quickly as possible so we can continue to make progress against this virus and defeat it once and for all."

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.
