How and where to get vaccinated

1. Find a nearby vaccination center

The COVID-19 vaccine is now available to all New York residents 5 and older. People who live outside of the state but work or study in New York are also eligible to get vaccinated. People who are eligible based on employment include both paid and unpaid workers.

Vaccines are being distributed by health-care providers, hospital clinics, pharmacies, urgent care centers, and community vaccination sites.

The vaccines have been shown to protect people from COVID-19. We don’t know if they keep you from spreading the virus to someone else. Keep doing your part to keep New York healthy.
