They’re swapping pinstripes for pin pricks.
The city now has Yankee Stadium in its lineup of future COVID-19 vaccination sites, too, a rep for Mayor Bill de Blasio said Tuesday.
Hizzoner had announced earlier in the day that the rival Mets would host a mass immunization center at their Citi Field stadium in Queens starting later this month.
Sources said the Yankees offered up their Bronx stadium to the city as a potential coronavirus vaccination site a couple of months ago.
A source said the team specifically mentioned using the stadium’s Great Hall, a massive concourse area where banners and photos of Yankee greats are hung, as a staging area for the inoculations.
De Blasio spokesman Bill Neidhardt told The Post on Tuesday, “We confirm that we’re working with the Yankees organization to turn Yankee Stadium into a vaccination site.
“More details are to come.”
