Manhattan College partnered with Village Apothecary as part of a federal program to inoculate New Yorkers.
But doctors say they've seen a new problem arise.
"Now everyone who has wanted a vaccine has gotten one. And just like today, we thought we were going to get rid of 1,000 doses without a problem, but we'll probably only get rid of about 200 to 300. Which is a good problem to have," said Dr. Neal Smolen with Village Apothecary.
The vaccine is not yet mandatory for Manhattan College students, but the hope is to vaccinate as many people within the community as possible to keep cases low.
Students and faculty were able to book their appointments online, but walk ins were welcome.
