The Bronx Zoo now has one more reason for people to visit as they are now a walk-in vaccination site for New Yorkers. Vaccines will be offered Monday through Friday from 10am to 5pm until June 30th. The Bronx Zoo is offering the Pfizer vaccine. The Pfizer vaccine is eligible for everyone 12 and up. The city is hopeful this will incentivize New Yorkers to get the vaccine.
Eligible participants must arrive at the zoo’s Southern Boulevard Parking Lot. The vaccination site is located in that parking lot and accessible via the Bronx Zoo pedestrian entrance on Southern Boulevard or by car via the Southern Boulevard parking lot entrance. Guests will be allowed to park in the lot as they get the vaccine.
All individuals receiving a vaccine at the zoo will be given a complimentary ticket for a future visit. Ticket dates are pre-determined by the Bronx Zoo and cannot be exchanged for a different day. Due to park capacity restrictions, the courtesy ticket issued upon vaccination will be for a future visit date.
To get a vaccine at the zoo, guests can walk-in or schedule an appointment by visiting NYC Vaccine Finder and selecting the Bronx Zoo – Southern Boulevard vaccination site or by calling 877-VAX-4NYC (877-829-4692). Learn more here.
