Covid-19 Vaccine Update

NEW INFORMATION:
Yankee Stadium will now become a vaccine hub starting this Friday.. It is located at 1 East 161st Street. It will only be open to Bronx residents on an appointment-only basis from 8 AM to 8 PM. It will be open seven days a week. 15,000 appointments will be available for the hub's first week. You can schedule appointments by visiting somosvaccinations.com or by calling 1-833-SOMOS-NY. Proof of Bronx residency will be needed.

If you need transportation to get your vaccine, click here for a list of options.

 

NOTE: Information on the vaccine changes very quickly. This site will be updated as needed but may not have the most recent item announced. 

 

 Right now, many people are trying to make appointments so you may not be able to get through and make an appointment. Hopefully, this will ease up in the next few days. 

The RSS Center is not a distribution site for the vaccine.
