NYC Health Department’s two mobile units were in Harlem along Lenox Avenue between 125th Street and 124th Street uptown side on May 11, 2021, to offer Harlemites a shot of the Johnson and Johnson COVID-19 vaccine.

Several city workers, including Sierra Leonean New Yorker Ahmed Kgarbo, started their outreach in the community on May 12, and will continue the following day May 13, to try to convince one of the hardest-hit communities in New York to get the vaccine.

The mobile units will be open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and will accept anyone with an ID, willing to take the shot.
