In another major push toward vaccinating all New Yorkers, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced on Saturday that city-run sites will now offer vaccines to anyone 50 years and older without an appointment.

Starting Saturday, a handful of city-run vaccination centers in each of the five boroughs will inoculate anyone 50 and up. Previously, the city was only offering walk-ins for New Yorkers who were 75 and older.

“Our priority for the next few months is clear: we need to vaccinate as many New Yorkers as possible,” said Mayor Bill de Blasio. “By making it easier for New Yorkers 50 and older to get vaccinated, we are on our way to fully vaccinating five million New Yorkers by June.”
