As schools reopen this week, vaccine hubs located in Department of Education facilities will be affected. Some sites will be relocated or consolidated, and others will operate on a modified schedule in the coming weeks.

New Yorkers who have appointments will be automatically rescheduled and notified of the change via text, call, and email. If they mistakenly still go to the original site, they will be redirected by staff on site. For New Yorkers 65-and-older, transportation will be available.

Every effort will be made to reschedule people for the same day/time at the new location. If the rescheduled time does not work for the eligible individual, they can reschedule for an alternative time.

New Yorkers who have not yet scheduled appointments will be able to select a site from among the hundreds of vaccination locations opened in recent weeks. Additionally, pharmacies began serving New Yorkers with underlying conditions as well as people 60-years and older and teachers/child care workers.

Sites being relocated this week include the following:

Manhattan:

A. Phillip Randolph High School to: City College North Academic Center Amsterdam between W136th and W138th.

3/25/21

Queens:

Aviation High School to: Long Island City Site 5-17 46th Rd, Long Island City

3/25/21

Staten Island:

Staten Island Technical High School to: Ocean Breeze Athletic 625 Father Capodanno Blvd, Staten Island

3/25/21

Other sites, including Port Richmond, Lincoln, August Martin, Hillcrest high schools will begin offering second dose appointments only – with modified hours -- as alternative sites are identified. Health Department sites located outside of schools, such as the Worth St location in Manhattan, Corona Clinic in Queens, the East Harlem Neighborhood Health Action Center, and others, will continue their normal operations.
