Major League stadiums used as vaccination sites

More Major League ballparks in the United States are to be used as mass coronavirus vaccination sites.

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio announced on Tuesday that the home stadium of the New York Mets will become a site for providing vaccinations around the clock.

The mayor says the site will eventually scale up to be able to vaccinate approximately 5,000 to 7,000 eligible New Yorkers per day.

In the state of California, the San Diego Padres' stadium has been used since Monday to give 5,000 shots per day. Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles will be available from Friday to administer up to 12,000 doses a day.

Officials have already decided that National Football League stadiums and Disneyland, which has remained closed, will also be used as vaccination sites.
