New York City open COVID-19 vaccine hubs on Sunday morning.
News 12 was at the South Bronx Education Campus on Saturday, which will serve as one of three hubs along with the Bushwick Educational Campus and Hillcrest High School in Queens.
They will be open seven days a week from 9 a.m. until 7 p.m. with another 12 hubs scheduled to be open next week.
The vaccines will be given out by appointment only to eligible New Yorkers. Officials say the process will take about 30 minutes – from receiving the shot to a brief observation period in case of allergic reaction.
Depending on supply, it's estimated each hub will be able to vaccinate around 2,000 New Yorkers a day in the city’s underserved areas.
