16 Community-based Pop-Up Vaccination Sites

Community-based ‘Pop Up’ vaccination sites have enabled more than 77,000 New Yorkers to receive their first dosage of the vaccine. More sites are opening up across the state.

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced Friday, 16 community-based pop-up vaccination sites are coming online over the next week in locations picked to ensure the COVID-19 vaccine is distributed equitably throughout New York State. These sites are expected to vaccinate 7,100 people throughout the week. Since January 15, more than 200 community-based pop-up sites have administered more than 77,000 first doses of the COVID-19 vaccine. Vaccinations are by appointment only and walk-ins are not allowed.

“New York State is working tirelessly to vaccinate all eligible New Yorkers for COVID-19, but hesitancy remains a serious issue, especially in communities of color, as well as ones which have been historically underserved. That’s why we’ve established pop-up vaccination sites to bring the vaccine directly to those communities in every region of the state,” Governor Cuomo said. “These 16 pop-up sites in public housing developments, houses of worship and community centers will administer thousands of shots in arms over the next week and get us closer to a post-COVID future.”

The establishment of many of these vaccination sites was made possible through partnerships with multiple public and private health care providers. Host sites and partner providers conduct outreach within their communities and work with community leaders and organizations to identify eligible New Yorkers and schedule vaccination appointments.

This continued development of community-based ‘pop up’ vaccination sites furthers Governor Cuomo’s mandate of ensuring the fair and equitable distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine. In late 2020, the Governor announced the launch of New York’s Vaccine Equity Task Force chaired by Secretary of State Rossana Rosado, Urban League President & CEO Marc Morial, and HealthfirstPresident & CEO Pat Wang. Since its establishment, the Task Force has continued work to ensure vulnerable and underserved communities are not left behind by breaking down the barriers to vaccination and ensuring there is equitable distribution of the vaccine across the state.
