Mobile pop-up sites to offer COVID-19 vaccine at NYC beaches for Memorial Day weekend
Mobile vaccination buses will be stationed throughout some popular spots in New York City to offer the COVID-19 vaccine to New Yorkers this Memorial Day weekend.
From hospitals, grocery stores, and a local pharmacy to parks and now beaches, these mobile pop-ups are meant to make it even easier for people to find and receive the vaccine, not to mention all the incentives and giveaways the city is offering to get all New Yorkers on board.
In the Bronx, Orchard Beach will have a mobile site from today until Sunday. The pop-up will be offering Pfizer vaccines from 10 a.m. through 7 p.m. Residents do not need an appointment. All they need to do is show up.
A mobile site will also be stationed along 149 Street near 3rd Avenue from today up until Sunday. Anyone ages 12 and older will be administered the Pfizer vaccine.
In Brooklyn, Governors Island will also have a running site until Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. where walk-ins will be accepted.
Brighton Beach will have a pop-up site operating on Saturday and Sunday until 7 p.m.
The Brooklyn sites will also offer the Pfizer vaccine.
Mayor Bill de Blasio says these sites will be in places where people are going to be visiting this weekend as they enjoy Memorial Day.
The push continues to be part of the city's vaccination effort to get more people vaccinated.
