Medical providers to bring COVID-19 vaccines directly to NYC bodega workers

Further expanding efforts to get as many New Yorkers inoculated as possible, medical workers will be administering COVID-19 vaccines to bodega owners and employees right where they work, Governor Andrew Cuomo announced Friday during a press conference at Harlem’s Mission Society.

The program will be administered by the nonprofit SOMOS to grocery stores in Brooklyn, Queens, Harlem and Staten Island, while Urban Health will provide the shots to bodegas in the Bronx through five pop-up vaccination sites.
