ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) —  Two pop-up COVID-19 vaccination sites will open in the Finger Lakes region beginning on Saturday, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Wednesday.

One clinic is at the Riverside Convention Center on Main Street in Rochester, while the other is at Mt. Olive Missionary Baptist Church on Clark Street in Geneva. The sites will go online this week, according to the state. 

These sites join 33 others across the state that are expected to vaccinate over 25,000 people throughout the week, according to the governor's office, with more sites coming online every week. 

"COVID brought the ugly truth of inequity and inequality in this country to a tipping point," Cuomo said. "COVID has killed Black and Latino New Yorkers at a higher rate and that is why these community-based sites are one of New York's vaccine priorities. More than 9,000 New Yorkers have been vaccinated through this effort and by making the vaccine accessible and delivered by trusted community partners, we can address the skepticism and bring this life-saving vaccine to those who need it most. The light at the end of the tunnel is bright and getting brighter with each new location and each shot administered."

The sites will be re-established in three weeks to administer second doses, state officials said.

Vaccinations at these sites are being done by appointment only. Click here to check your eligibility.

Cuomo announced Tuesday that local governments can now add restaurant workers, taxi drivers, and those at developmentally disabled facilities to the Phase 1b vaccine eligibility list, only if they are able to do so.
