Gov. Kathy Hochul Wednesday announced 29 new #VaxForKids pop-up vaccination sites to increase vaccination rates among children and adolescents. The new sites support the state’s goal of ensuring New York children 5 years and older get vaccinated and keep up with all recommended COVID-19 vaccine doses, including the booster.
“New York State ranks first among large states in fully vaccinated adolescents, thanks in part to our #VaxForKids program that brings the vaccine directly to communities, with over 222 sites established to date,” Hochul said. “The vaccine is doctor-approved and our best tool to keep our families and communities safe from COVID-19. Parents and guardians, please talk to your child’s pediatrician or health care provider about getting your child vaccinated if you haven’t already.”
On Long Island, the Dix Hills Fire Department will once again serve as a host on Friday, from 2-7:30 p.m. The department is at 115 Deer Park Road, Dix Hills. Vaccine Type: Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna. For ages 5 and up.
