Pop-up vaccination site at early voting location in Rochester


ALBANY, N.Y. (WROC) — Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced on Friday the state will open nine pop-up vaccination clinics across the state at or near early voting sites, one in Rochester.

The Edgerton Recreational Center, 41 Backus Street, will serve as both an early voting location and a pop-up COVID-19 vaccination clinic on Sunday, June 20, the last day of early voting.

According to the governor’s office, the state will target zip codes with vaccination rates lower than the state average.

“We remain laser-focused on making the vaccine accessible in every community, and will go wherever New Yorkers go in order to reach them,” Gov. Cuomo said in a statement. “We know some areas are still lagging in getting people vaccinated, and these new pop-up sites at early voting locations will allow New Yorkers to perform two civic duties at once – casting their ballot and rolling up their sleeve.”   

Since January 15, more than 250 community-based pop-up sites have administered more than 90,000 first doses of the COVID-19 vaccine.
