Walk-In COVID Testing Will Be Available at Seven Subway Stations
The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) is reminding customers that COVID-19 testing will now be available at seven subway station stops on Thursday, Dec. 30.
The state-funded, walk-in PCR testing are being offered at these seven subway stations:
- Times Square-42nd St (Manhattan) Monday – Sunday, 8:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.
- Grand Central Terminal (Manhattan) Monday – Sunday, 3:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
- Penn Station (Manhattan) Monday – Sunday, 3:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
- Broadway Junction (Brooklyn) Monday – Friday, 8:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.
- E. 180th St (Bronx) Monday – Friday, 8:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.
- Roosevelt Ave (Queens) Monday – Friday, 8:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.
- Jamaica–179th St (Queens) Monday – Friday, 2:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.
The testing sites at Penn Station and Jamaica-179th St will be closed on New Year’s Eve, and all sites will be closed on New Year’s Day and open again either on Sunday or on Monday as noted.
The state-funded testing program provides anyone, including those visiting New York, the opportunity to get tested without an appointment.
The testing sites at Times Square-42nd St and Grand Central Terminal are also pop-up vaccination sites and offer COVID-19 vaccine booster shots.
In May of this year and in collaboration with the MTA, New York State began a COVID-19 vaccination program that provided the one-shot Johnson & Johnson vaccine at pop-up sites in various subway stations. Currently, Moderna vaccines and boosters are being offered. To date, more than 38,000 people have been vaccinated at pop-up sites.
