ALBANY, N.Y. (WTEN) — A new pop up vaccination clinic will be opening in Rochester — one of 12 new pop-up sites throughout the state.
The governor announced the 12 community-based sites are coming online this week at public housing developments, churches, community centers, schools and fire stations.
Locally, the pop-up vaccine site will be at the Campbell Street R-Center, 52 Campbell St. on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The sites are expected to vaccinate more than 4,000 people throughout the week. Since January 15, 120 community-based pop-up sites administered more than 50,000 first doses of the COVID-19 vaccine. As has been the case with previous pop-up sites, these sites will be re-established in three weeks to administer second doses.
