Yankee Stadium and Javits Center vaccine sites to operate 24/7
New York will start giving approximately 164,800 doses of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine at a variety of locations across the state this week.
Today, Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s office announced that mass vaccination sites at Yankee Stadium and Javits Center will operate around the clock. “To ensure an efficient and streamlined administration of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, these doses will be administered separately from the Pfizer vaccines at these sites. While the Pfizer vaccine requires two doses, the Johnson & Johnson vaccine only requires one,” says the governor’s website.
The Yankee Stadium site will administer the Johnson & Johnson vaccine on Thursday, March 4 between 8 p.m. and 7 a.m., while the Javits Center will give doses between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m.
CVS will also begin giving the J&J option this week. CNN is reporting doses are being shipped to stores in 17 states, including New York. News 12 is working to find out if any of those locations are in the Hudson Valley.
New York expects its next allocation of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine in approximately 10 days.
