New Vaccine Site at Bronx High School of Science Sees Long Lines

Following the opening of the new COVID-19 vaccination site at Bronx High School of Science, located at 75 West 205th Street, in Jerome Park, a long line of people were seen all along Goulden Avenue for about a quarter of a mile, as they waited patiently to get vaccinated on Sunday, Feb. 26. As reported by Norwood News, on Sunday, March 2, Assemblyman Jeffrey Dinowitz announced on social media the same evening that the Walton High School Campus vaccination site, one of the local vaccination sites for Bronx Community Board 7 residents, had moved to the nearby Jerome Park site, because NYC Department of Education needed to reclaim the Walton HS campus for middle schoolers who returning to the classroom for in-person learning. Dinowitz added that the vaccination procedure at the new site would remain the same as before, as shots would be administered by appointment only.
