Jabits Center (Javits Center used as a vaccination site)

New York City’s Jacob K. Javits Convention Center was used in 2021 as a vaccination center against Covid. Some people said it should be called “Jab-Its.”

“New York’s Jacob Javits Center is now The Jacob Jabits Center. #vaccinations” was posted on Twitter by Stephen Sheehan ☮⭐ on January 12, 2021. “what fool didn’t rename it the jabits center” was posted on Twitter by Bo Bolander on February 28, 2021. “i’m so sorry to introduce this to the timeline but how has nobody called the javits center the jabits center yet [Syringe]” was posted on Twitter by mindy on March 3, 2021.

“JAVax” (Javits + vax) is a similar nickname.


Wikipedia: Javits Center
The Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, commonly known as the Javits Center, is a large convention center on Eleventh Avenue between 34th Street and 38th Street in Hell’s Kitchen, Manhattan, New York City. It was designed by architect James Ingo Freed of Pei Cobb Freed & Partners. The space frame structure was constructed from 1980 to 1986 and was named to honor Jacob Javits, the United States Senator for New York. When the Javits Center opened, it replaced the New York Coliseum at Columbus Circle as the city’s major convention facility; the Coliseum was subsequently demolished and replaced by Time Warner Center.

Since they’re doing COVID vaccinations at the Javits Center, can we temporarily call it the “Jabits Center”?

MY MORNING AT JABITS CENTER
FEBRUARY 9, 2021
‘It gave my trip to the City a real shot in the arm’

If you have attended a trade show in New York City — like my Taza-chocolate-founder nephew Alex or my former-freelance-partner Terril — then you’ve been to the Javits Center. It’s a super-huge convention center that was repurposed into a vast field hospital during the peak of the pandemic and is now one ginormous Pfizer booth. Well, er, vaccination center.

In honor of its new role, it’s been redubbed the “JAVax Center,” which I suppose is pretty clever, though Jacob Javits, who was kind of a male Bella Abzug, might roll around in his grave to hear it. They should have asked me; I would have offered up “Jabits Center.” After all, you go there and get what they call, rather cutely in the UK, a “jab.”
