Starting today, select Long Islanders will head to a new COVID-19 pop-up vaccination site in Wyandanch.
It's the latest in a series of locations opening to provide shots to Long Islanders in underserved communities.
The site is open between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. at the Gerald Ryan Outreach Center on Straight Path.
Assemblywoman Kimberly Jean-Pierre says the pop-up site will deliver life-saving doses to people who otherwise might not be able to get them.
Without a car, some of the vaccination sites are out of reach.
“If you don't make things accessible to people then it becomes nearly impossible, particularly for some demographics, for some communities,” says Jean-Pierre.
The 500 appointments that were available at this site were all booked in about a day and a half.
