I am pleased to share that Governor Cuomo has announced that the College will serve as an additional vaccination site, partnering with Northwell Health to assist in the vaccination efforts on Staten Island. Starting this Friday, June 11, Northwell Health will be administering the first dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine to unvaccinated community members. A FEMA mobile vaccination unit/trailer will be set up in Parking Lot 2 outside of Building 1A for this purpose. This site will participate in the State’s Vax & Scratch’ Program. The second dose of the vaccine will be scheduled and administered at one of Northwell’s nearby sites.
Anyone interested in receiving their first dose of the vaccine on campus can simply come to campus on any of the dates and times below and advise security at the front gate of the purpose for their visit.

* this site may be extended beyond this initial time frame based on demand.
Please be advised that masks are required to be worn while on campus.
As you are aware, Governor Cuomo has announced that all CUNY students will be required to be vaccinated to attend in-person classes in the fall. While this mandate does not include faculty and staff, all are encouraged to get vaccinated as that may be one of the best ways to protect yourself and your loved ones from the Coronavirus. We hope you take advantage of this opportunity.
I am looking forward to seeing you on campus in the fall.
