In a unique effort to encourage people to get the COVID vaccine, NYC will give Covid shots at subway stops and give you a week’s worth of free rides to boot!
To combat the falling vaccination rates, Governor Andrew Cuomo announced on Monday that from May 12 to May 16, residents can get vaccinated at six subway stations in the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan and Queens.
And when you opt to get a shot you get a free seven-day MetroCard.
‘You are walking into the subway station anyway, you are walking past the vaccination site, it’s a one-shot vaccination, stop, take a few minutes, get the vaccine,’ Cuomo said during a press conference.
‘We have a lot of theories, we’re going to test them. It is a creative idea – because we have to get the vaccinations up.’
