NEWS 12: Bronx Rising Initiative and Catholic Charities team up to get New Yorkers vaccinated

Reporter: Alexa Farrell

Bronx Rising Initiative teamed up with Catholic Charities today to vaccinate individuals especially those in communities with low vaccination rates. Anyone who roles up their sleeve for the shot today will get a $100 cash card.

This is the last week to get the Covid 19 vaccine in order to be fully vaccinated before school starts in September. Pfizer is the only vaccine approved for children ages 12 and up that will be returning to the classroom in September. It takes a full five weeks to be fully vaccinated. So August 9th is the last day that your child can get the shot to be fully vaccinated prior to school starting in September.
