“I commend Governor Cuomo and Mayor de Blasio for taking a significant step forward towards equity by announcing that Yankee Stadium will serve as a vaccination hub in the South Bronx. Our residents have some of the highest COVID-19 infections in the city and urgently need vital resources and services.
Starting Friday, February 5th, the Yankee Stadium site will operate daily from 8 AM – 8 PM by appointment only for Bronx residents that meet New York’s 1a and 1b vaccine eligibility requirements.
Our Black, Latinx, immigrant, and older Bronxites deserve fair access to the vaccine, and we will continue to work with city and state officials and community organizations to ensure they receive priority. Please call 1-833-SOMOSNY or schedule an appointment online at somosvaccinations.com.”
