Tourists in NYC can get themselves vaccinated

Published on : Thursday, May 13, 2021

International travelers have once again received the permission to travel to New York and get a COVID vaccine due to a change in the state’s regulations. New York will give the one-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine to US tourists at mobile vaccination hubs at popular spots.


To quote New York’s Mayor Bill de Blasio, “We want tourism back. We’re doing a huge effort to bring tourism back. We talked it about a few days ago, big $30 million campaign to get the tourists back to New York City. This summer, you’re going to see tourism come alive again in New York City, you’re going to see a lot of jobs come back because of it. We want to go the extra mile, make it easy for tourists. If they’re here, get vaccinated while you’re here. It makes sense to put mobile vaccination sites where the tourists are. That is good for all of us that they get vaccinated. It’s good for them. It’s another reason to be here and know you’re going to be taken care of.”


The Mayor said that they are going to be set up mobile vaccination sites where tourists visit.


Blasio said, “We’ll be using the J & J vaccine. We’ll be in Times Square, Brooklyn Bridge Park, Central Park, the High Line, a variety of locations. And we’re going to be working with the State of New York. We need the State to alter the rule that will allow us to provide vaccination to folks from out of town. But we think this is a positive message to tourists – come here, it’s safe, it’s a great place to be, and we’re going to take care of you. We’re going to make sure you get vaccinated while you’re here with us. So, this is going to start as soon as we get that approval. We’re ready to go this weekend. We want to welcome more and more people into the vaccination effort.”
