The city is bumping up efforts to get New Yorkers vaccinated by bringing the vaccine to the Department of Education’s Summer Rising sites across the boroughs. 
I.S. 278 in Marine Park was one of two Summer Rising sites that had to transition to remote learning due to positive cases. This comes on the heels of the DOE’s announcement that coronavirus vaccinations will be available at 25 Summer Rising sites beginning on Monday. 
It's all part of a campaign to get young people vaccinated, along with the continued effort for DOE employees to also get vaccinated. 
News 12 is told vaccination sites will be available starting Monday through Aug. 13 in all five boroughs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. 
Sites that will be administering the shot include the Fort Hamilton High School in Brooklyn and the Herbert H. Lehman High School in the Bronx. 
Students must be 12 or older to receive the Pfizer vaccine. Minors must have verbal consent from a parent at the time. 
Minors who are ages 15 and younger must have an adult present. 
Mayor Bill de Blasio says 226,000 youths from the ages of 12 to 17 have received at least one dose of the vaccine.
