Pop-up vaccination sites, as they’re informally known, aren’t targeted at the general public, but "rural communities, poor communities … Black and Latino communities, public housing, other health care deserts," Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo said in December.

"We call them community vaccination kits," he said.

Can anyone sign up?

What's a vaccine pop-up site?

Is a pop-up site different from other venues?

What happens when I show up to get my shot at a pop-up site?

What’s the idea behind the program?

Do I need an appointment or can I just show up?

Where and when are the pop-up sites?

What about the second shot?
