City That Never Sleeps Signing Up for Midnight Vaccinations

NEW YORK (AP) — New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio says city residents are rushing to sign up for late-night COVID-19 vaccination slots.

The mayor said Monday that midnight-to-4 a.m. appointments at the two 24-hour vaccination sites the city has set up so far were quickly snapped up.

Mayor de Blasio said the city is speeding up vaccinations, with more than 160 sites now open. He said nearly 101,800 shots were administered last week.

Monday was the first day that people over 75 and essential workers including police officers, firefighters and teachers were allowed to receive the vaccines in New York.
