Mayor and Chancellor visit Lehman High School Vaccination Center

Mayor de Blasio and Chancellor Porter Visit COVID-19 Vaccination Center at Lehman High School

By Robert Press

This is City Hall in the Bronx Week, and after hosting his morning briefing from the Rotunda of the Bronx Courthouse, the mayor stopped at a refurbished playground at the Edenwald Houses where he met Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie, State Senator Jamaal Bailey, and Councilman Kevin Riley. The mayor thanked Washington and Albany for the increased funding that will help fix up many NYCHA houses, and was off to Lehman High School to visit the new vaccination center there that will vaccinate many of the high school’s students. 

Mayor Bill de Blasio and Chancellor Meisha Porter arrived at Lehman High School to check up on the vaccination center set up in the school’s auditorium. Several Lehman students were given the first of two Pfizer doses of the COVID-19 vaccine. Some of the students were a little afraid, but all had no problem receiving the COVID-19 vaccination. They were later joined by local Assemblyman Michael Benedetto for a group photo.  

Isabel, a fifteen year old Lehman High School student is given the first dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine by Katrina Taormina of Daybreak Health, as Mayor de Blasio, and NYCDOH Commissioner Dave Chokshi look on.
Everyone claps as Isabel has received her first of two Pfizer COVID-19 vaccination shots, with no apparent reaction. The needle used is placed in the waste container.  

It was then time for a group photo with other Lehman High School students who received the first of two Pfizer COVID-19 vaccination shots. Mayor de Blasio, Chancellor Porter, and Assemblyman Benedetto are with the students.
