Vaccines and flu shots set to start today in New York

Today, December 31, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Health Department are launching two new vaccine facilities statewide, joining four others announced in February.

As part of Cuomo’s New York Health Action Plan, this new initiative brings new primary and urgent care services to the communities that need them most, while supporting immunization activities for children, pregnant women, and anyone interested in the health and wellness of our communities.

Each health facility and vaccine is tailored for specific community needs and includes the availability of an infant or vaccine specialist, and convenient walk-in accessibility for services.

To celebrate the new year, Gov. Cuomo and the New York State Health Department invite all New Yorkers to attend a welcome party beginning at noon at the Atticus R. David Building in Brooklyn, where children are invited to receive their vaccine.

Over the course of the next year, each new vaccine facility will open in a variety of locations throughout the state to provide the best available resources for the people of New York State. More information about vaccine facilities or to RSVP for the special welcoming party can be found on our health website.

The invited guests at the Brooklyn event will enjoy complimentary food and drinks while learning more about the benefits of vaccination and registration for the vaccine, including the benefits of C. difficile vaccination and the flu vaccine.
