In less than a month, Mets will host a home opener at the stadium in front of a 10% capacity, approximately 1,000 spectators.
This means that the COVID vaccination megasite installed at the facility needs to be moved for the fans.
The vaccination center will move from Jackie Robinson Rotunda to McFadden’s sports bars and restaurants, but will not have access to the facility’s concourse.
April 8th is Mets’ home opener.
