They appear to be doing it in the Delta club -- or whichever the one is that's behind home plate on the 100 section.
Been awhile since I've been in the stadium so I forget which entrance Delta is, but the vaccine area is Gate 4 at the corner of 161 and Macombs Dam Br Ave (before it turns into Jerome near Gate 2). They've also opened some of the ticket windows up to schedule appointments because people were coming without one. So far open every day from 8am-8pm, handling up to 15,000 appointments per week. The capacity is based on vaccine availability, not what they can actually handle. They'll open it up 24/7 if they can get enough supply (Gothamist: De Blasio, Seen In Rarely Worn Bombers Cap, Launches COVID Vaccine Site At Yankee Stadium)
Based on the video I saw on NY1 of them setting up the venue, it's the Ford Field MVP Club (located behind home plate in the 100s). Delta SKY360 Suite is in the 200s.

I was watching the Bronx 12 "Ask the Borough President" sit down last night. There was no mention of NYCFC, but it did make me think, at what point does NYCFC/ Madd Equities need to annouced at least a MOU for a stadium before a new administration can ask to review the deal and slow down the process. I was thinking Diaz and De Blasio need to have deal done by the end of August, if not then its an issue for the candiates running for office. As the topic of housing will be one the biggest issues with the stadium. Is there sufficient housing with the stadium, should there be housing and not a stadium, etc.

I understand I am getting ahead of myself as the team needs to address many issues before they make an announcement. Thank you theOutfield.org for the articles as a reminder of the steps that need to be completed first. As more of you are well versed in NY Politics, I thought i would bring it up here in the forum.

Well hopefully the club learned something from the last time this happened at the end of the Bloomberg admin.
