Start not spreading the Covid, with a vaccine shot at Yankee Stadium or Citi Field in New York City.Image: Getty ImagesIf this isn’t a metaphor for New York baseball I don’t know what is.Today, Citi Field began vaccinating New Yorkers, but this 24 hour “mega site” will only inoculate 200 people a day through the end of the week. Yankee Stadium, which began vaccinations on Friday, administers 2,200 doses per day. The Mets can never catch a break in this town. In all seriousness, the discrepancy in supply isn’t surprising considering the Queens site is run by the City, which has fewer doses than the state-run venue at Yankee Stadium. But more will arrive in Flushing soon. According to NBC 4 New York, the ballpark is expected to receive 2,000 to 4,000 shots next week — still far less than the 15,000 per week in the Bronx. Citi Field vaccinations are currently open to taxi drivers and food delivery workers from the five boroughs, but the City says it’s main focus is on Queens residents.G/O Media may get a commission“Citi Field is focused on Queens residents,” New York City Mayor, Bill de Blasio, said before traveling to the vaccination site today. “No one bore the brunt more than Queens residents — Elmhurst and other neighborhoods.”Pro sports stadiums across the country have already started to step up to the plate in vaccine distribution. In Major League Baseball, the Dodgers, Padres, Astros, and other ballclubs have turned their turf into mass inoculation sites. And seven NFL stadiums are currently offering shots as well. The Biden administration has also recently announced that they plan to accept Roger Goodell’s offer to use all 30 NFL stadiums for mass vaccination sites. While this piece of news will undoubtedly give New York sports fans another reason to poke fun at the city’s less popular and less relevant team, at least we can recognize that this publicly funded stadium is beginning to serve the public, which more should do.Besides, a vaccination site at Citi Field gives the Mets their first easy win in years. .

President Joe Biden in interview with CBS News’ Norah O’Donnell.Screenshot: CBS NewsStarting tomorrow, all NFL stadiums will sit empty through the winter, spring, and summer. Why not use these large, mostly outdoor, venues for the public good? In a Super Bowl pregame interview with CBS, President Joe Biden said he would like to use all 30 NFL stadiums as mass vaccination sites.In an exchange with CBS News’ Norah O’Donnell, Biden said he, “got a call through commissioner [Roger] Goodell saying we could have all 32 NFL stadiums available for mass vaccinations.” There are, of course, only 30 NFL stadiums because the Jets and Giants share the same turf, as do the Rams and Chargers. But that’s besides the point.“Are you going to use them? NFL stadiums to vaccinate?” O’Donnell asked.“Absolutely we will,” Biden responded. “I mean, let me put it this way, I’m going to tell my team they’re available and I believe we’ll use them.”G/O Media may get a commissionHere’s the entire segment from CBS.Earlier in the interview, O’Donnell pressed Biden on the vaccine rollout noting that “at the current rate of 1.3 million doses per day, it’s going to take almost a year to get [to herd immunity, approximately 75 percent of Americans vaccinated].“Can we wait that long?” asked O’Donnell.“No, we can’t,” said Biden, hence the reason to speed up the process and find spaces to inoculate thousands of Americans a day.Seven NFL teams; Arizona Cardinals, Atlanta Falcons, Baltimore Ravens, Carolina Panthers, Houston Texans, Miami Dolphins and New England Patriots, already host vaccination sites at their stadiums, and more pro sports teams are offering their venues up as well. On Friday, Yankee Stadium began vaccinating Bronx residents.In the letter to Biden obtained by the AP, Goodell said football stadiums would be a good place to vaccinate because many have served as testing centers and election sites. “We look forward to further discussion with your administration as well as your partners in state and local governments to advance this effort,” Goodell wrote. .
