ALBANY, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — New York State has 16 more community-based pop-up COVID-19 vaccination clinics coming online over the next week at churches, public housing developments, and community centers. These sites aim to vaccinate hard-to-reach populations and are expected to vaccinate more than 4,500 people.

Since January 15, more than 145 of these sites of been established and have administered more than 55,000 first doses of the COVID-19 vaccine. Sites are re-established 3 weeks later to give second-dose shots.

“No state is doing a better job at safe, effective, equitable vaccine distribution than New York, and we are working tirelessly every single day to get shots into arms quickly and become the first COVID-free state in the country,” Governor Andrew Cuomo said. “We are ramping up our vaccine distribution system to match increases in supply, but a distribution system can’t just grow – it has to grow equitably. That’s why from the outset we’ve prioritized the fair and equitable distribution of the vaccine through special efforts like pop-up sites that are being established in the communities that were hit hardest by COVID to help ensure underserved New Yorkers are not left behind in the distribution process.”

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.

In Central New York, sites have been established over the recent weeks at the Boys & Girls Club in Syracuse and several churches.
