The Press Release:
New Yorkers have until the end of the month to receive COVID-19 vaccinations at the American Museum of Natural History. The New York City vaccination site, which first opened in April 2021 and has administered more than 97,000 vaccinations, will have its last operating day on Thursday, March 31. As it approaches the 100,000-vaccination milestone, the Museum encourages those who have not yet been vaccinated or gotten their booster to do so. Everyone who receives vaccinations at the Museum also will receive a voucher for complimentary general admission. Starting April 1, a New York City mobile vaccination bus will be temporarily stationed outside of the Museum at 77th Street and Central Park West to serve anyone seeking a walk-in vaccination.

The Museum’s vaccination site opened almost a year ago, on April 23, 2021, as part of a historic partnership with the City. It was first located in the Museum’s Milstein Hall of Ocean Life, featuring the iconic blue whale with a prominent post-vaccination bandage on her fin. The whale’s bandage will remain in place to show the Museum’s continued support of the vaccination effort.
