NYC to open new vaccine site in partnership with Google and Hudson Guild

Mayor Bill de has announced that the City will open a new vaccination site at the Fulton Community Center in Chelsea, Manhattan. The new vaccination site located at 119 Ninth Avenue, hosted by Hudson Guild and operated by Daybreak Health, will offer more than 200 appointments per day – over 1,000 per week – and will be open 5 days a week, from Tuesday through Saturday.

“Technology is going to help fuel New York City’s recovery, including getting more New Yorkers vaccinated. I thank Google and Hudson Guild for their partnership to open this new site, and I encourage all eligible New Yorkers, especially NYCHA residents, to get vaccinated as soon as possible,” said Mayor Bill de Blasio.

The site, which opens on Wednesday, April 7, will prioritize vaccination appointments for nearby NYCHA residents, including residents at the Fulton Houses and Chelsea-Elliott Houses, with a particular focus on reaching seniors. In partnership with Hudson Guild and NYCHA, the City will conduct outreach to eligible NYCHA residents to help them get the facts about the vaccine, answer questions, and sign them up for appointments.

Starting April 12, eligible New Yorkers will also be able to make an appointment at this location by visiting nyc.gov/vaccinefinder or by calling 877-VAX-4NYC. Additional days and appointments will be available as supply increases citywide.

Google, whose NYC headquarters is located down the block from the Fulton Houses, is providing the City with support worth over $1 million to help vaccinate vulnerable communities in NYC. This includes $750,000 in advertising grants, to help ensure New Yorkers can easily find where, when and how to get a vaccine. Google is also providing a $330,000 Google.org grant to Hudson Guild to set up a community vaccination center located in the Fulton Houses NYCHA campus serving the Fulton Houses, Chelsea Elliot Houses, and the NYCHA community citywide.
