City barbershops offers COVID-19 vaccine along with haircuts to residents
City residents can now get a haircut and get a COVID-19 vaccine at the same time.
As part of New York City's Test and Trace Corp’s Barbershop and Beauty Salon Day of Action, the city is partnering up with barbershops throughout the city to help boost vaccination rates.
Places like Ike’s Barbershop in Morrisania are offering the Pfizer vaccine on the spot.
In the Morrisania neighborhood of the Bronx, only 63% of the population has had at least their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine -- that's 4% lower than the Bronx’s overall vaccination rate and 10% lower than New York City’s rate.
