New York Aquarium becomes new vaccination hub, offering Pfizer shot
As the city continues to bring the coronavirus vaccine to New Yorkers, there’s another spot in town that is turning into a vaccination site.
On Friday, the New York Aquarium was added to the list, turning its parking lot into a vaccination site.
This is in an effort to bring vaccines to the place that draws thousands of families from around the city each year.
The Pfizer vaccine is available for anyone as young as 12 years old, with or without an appointment.
Mayor Bill de Blasio toured the indoor and outdoor facilities Friday. The site is open between 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. from Monday to Friday through June 30.
Anyone who gets the shot will also get a complimentary ticket for their next visit to the aquarium.
