Helpful Tips Regarding COVID-19

Over seven million New Yorkers are now eligible for the vaccine. Eligible groups include doctors, nurses and health care workers, people age 65 and over, first responders, teachers, public transit workers, grocery store workers and public safety workers. 

Beginning February 15, New Yorkers with certain comorbidities and underlying conditions will be eligible to receive the vaccine.

Vaccines are available at pharmacies, hospitals and through local health departments statewide – please contact your provider of choice to schedule your vaccine appointment.
