The New York City Public Library has partnered up with Test & Trace Corps to host mobile vaccine clinics for kids ages 5 to 11 at more than a dozen city libraries.
These sites will be held on several Saturdays starting this weekend and through February at the 16 participating library branches.
The full schedule of the COVID-19 vaccination sites can be found here.
Since there is no COVID-19 vaccine for children under age 5 yet, doctors say it’s crucial for those who are eligible to get vaccinated to reach heard immunity.
"We're probably not able to reach that number without getting that 2 to 5 age group. But if more and more people who are eligible in the 5 and up age group get it, then we get closer and closer, which makes us closer to potentially ending this pandemic,” says Dr. Ilana Stein, a pediatrician at St. Barnabus.
