NEW YORK — New York commuters who haven’t gotten vaccinated yet may have the chance to do so at their local subway, Long Island Rail Road or Metro-North station.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced on Monday a pop-up COVID vaccination program at select MTA stations that will run from Wednesday to Sunday.

Anyone who gets a shot will receive either a free seven-day MetroCard or two free one-way trips on the LIRR or Metro-North.

The program will use the one-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine, so those who get the shot won’t need to schedule a second-dose appointment.

Locations and times of the pop-up vaccine sites:

  • Ossing – MetroNorth station – 3 p.m. to 8 p.m.
  • East 180th Street in the Bronx – 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
  • Grand Central Station – Vanderbilt Hall – 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
  • Penn Station – 34th St. Corridor – 3 p.m. to 8 p.m.
  • Coney Island – 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
  • 179th Street – Jamaica – 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
  • Hempstead LIRR station – 3 p.m. to 8 p.m.
  • Broadway Junction – 3 p.m. to 8 p.m.
