NEW YORK (AP) — New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo say Yankee Stadium will open as a COVID-19 vaccination site on Friday. The vaccination mega-site will be run jointly by the city and state and will serve only Bronx residents. Plans to provide COVID-19 inoculations at Yankee Stadium and also Citi Field were delayed by a lack of sufficient vaccine supply. No opening day for vaccinations at Citi Field has been announced. The mayor and governor said 15,000 people can be vaccinated during the first week the Yankee Stadium site is open.
