If you’re in need of a COVID-19 vaccination and have the desire to get one, New York City is opening up more locations to help you out.
Beginning today, Wednesday, May 12, six subway stations will be offering COVID-19 vaccinations at pop-up sites.
The vaccination being offered is the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
The vaccination pop-ups will be open from Wednesday through Sunday and those who receive their dose will receive a free seven-day MetroCard pass.
“Get a shot, and take a free ride on the MTA,’” Gov. Andrew Cuomo said said when announcing the opening of the spots. “You are walking into the subway station anyway. You are walking past the vaccination site. It’s a one-shot vaccination.”
Today’s the day! 💉
Now through Sunday, we’re hosting pop-up vaccine sites at 6 subway stations across the 5 boroughs. Even better: get your shot with us and we’ll give you a FREE 7-Day MetroCard.
Let’s get you vaccinated! See sites and more here: https://t.co/YSy4nJ6V6f
