The Brooklyn distribution sites are among 35 community-based facilities the state will open in churches, community centers, public housing complexes and cultural centers as part of its effort to bring vaccines to communities hardest-hit by the pandemic.

More than 9,000 New Yorkers have been vaccinated through this effort and by making the vaccine accessible and delivered by trusted community partners, we can address the skepticism and bring this life-saving vaccine to those who need it most.”
Three pop-up vaccine centers will open this week through the state, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced.
