New York: Free Pass to State Parks for Vaccinated Persons

New York (STL.News) Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced that every person who gets vaccinated with either a first dose, or single dose of Johnson & Johnson, anywhere in New York State between May 24 and 31 is eligible to receive a free two-day pass to any New York State Park, valid through September 30, 2021.  Passes can be picked up at any New York State Park.  Today’s announcement was made at Jones Beach State Park, where the already-operational mass vaccination site will offer the same incentive for those who receive their eligible vaccination.  Additionally, 15 New York State Parks will host pop-up COVID-19 vaccination sites.  These 15 sites will offer vaccinations on a first come first served basis utilizing the single dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

“Every State Park across New York is as unique and beautiful as the region it serves, and bringing the COVID vaccine to our parks will further expand access and make it even easier for New Yorkers to get vaccinated,” Governor Cuomo said.  “Providing those who get vaccinated with a free park pass is an incredible summer-season incentive, and a great way to get more people outdoors to enjoy all that New York has to offer.”
