Mayor Bill de Blasio announced an immunization module at major tourist attractions to provide Johnson & Johnson’s single-dose Covid-19 vaccine
Mexico City (apro).- New York City will provide all tourists with a free vaccine against covid-19.
Mayor Bill de Blasio announced the news. He reported that visitors to the Iron City will receive a single dose of vaccine from Johnson & Johnson Pharmaceuticals.
?? This summer, the tourism industry will be revitalized in New York City,” de Blasio said at the press conference. “We want to redouble our efforts to make tourists feel at ease. If they are here, please be here when you are vaccinated. “
The vaccination module will be placed in all tourist attractions such as Times Square, Brooklyn Bridge and Central Park. If the legal adjustment is realized, the day can start this weekend.
de Blasio said: “Does it make sense to place mobile vaccination sites where tourists are?” Vaccination is good for everyone. Good for them, this is another reason to come here and know they will take care of you. “
Immunization is one of New York’s largest campaigns to revive the tourism industry, for which 30 million US dollars have been allocated.
“For tourists, this is a positive message: Come here, it’s safe, this is an ideal place to go, we will take care of you and make sure you get vaccinated when you are around. We are ready to set off as soon as we get the approval. This weekend,” the Democratic politician said at a press conference.
In order to vaccinate tourists, the mayor reported that he is co-administering the state with Democrat Andrew Cuomo to adapt to current regulations and allow the city to “provide vaccines to people outside the city” or ” Non-New Yorkers”. ”
Moreover, the Big Apple needs approval from the Cuomo government to vaccinate foreigners, because current state regulations only allow people who live, work or study in New York to be vaccinated locally.
De Blasio said: “We need the country to change the rules so that we can provide vaccines to people living outside of cities.”
He said: “We are ready to start this weekend.” “We hope to welcome more and more people to participate in the vaccination work.”
Bill de Blasio announced last week that the city will be “fully” open on July 1, especially “shops, businesses, offices and cinemas.”
