NYC To Open Five More MPX Vaccine Clinics [VIDEO]

New York City’s Fox affiliate reports:

New York City is doubling the capacity to administer monkeypox vaccine shots as five new vaccine clinics are opening. The city also announced that it plans to open a clinic in the heart of Times Square in Manhattan. The move comes as the federal government declared a public health emergency. 79,000 doses have been received by New York City out of the approximately 131,000 doses that have been allocated to the city.

More than 30,000 doses have already been administered in NYC so far, with an additional 7,000 doses already scheduled for the coming days. 23,000 new appointments went online Thursday and were gone in less than an hour. The remainder of the doses have been set aside for close contacts of known cases and for private health care providers and referrals from community partner organizations.
