NYC: NYC subway stations begin to offer COVID-19 vaccinations

Six Big Apple subway stations launched their pop-up COVID-19 vaccination services Wednesday — in exchange for free rides for those who get jabbed.

Straphangers who receive the free vaccine — Johnson & Johnson’s single-shot dose only — at a subway station from Wednesday through Sunday will receive a free seven-day MetroCard pass, while Long Island Rail Road and Metro-North riders can expect two free trips.

The walk-up vaccines will be offered at Penn Station from 3 to 8 p.m.; Grand Central Terminal from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.; Broadway Junction from 3 to 8 p.m.; 179th Street in Jamaica, Queens from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.; and East 180th Street in The Bronx, 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The LIRR’s Hempstead station and Metro-North’s Ossining stop will also be giving out the vaccines, both from 3 to 8 p.m.

New Yorkers and tourists alike are permitted to receive the vaccines, as the residency requirement has been waived.
