COVID-19 Vaccination Appointments

April 9, 2021 – Vaccine Eligibility Update to Include Students: The state’s vaccine eligibility guidance has been formally updated to include people aged 16 and over who “study in New York State.” Students will need proof of their date of birth and a student ID in order to be vaccinated.

As a reminder, there are several ways to schedule appointments: via the state’s scheduling tool which shows appointments at mass vaccination sites; via New York City’s vaccine finder site; via private pharmacy websites (pharmacies can now vaccinate all eligible individuals); and via county and local municipality health departments.

If you are in an approved category,  you can also visit the sites below to schedule a vaccination appointment in other preferred locations. Please note that even if it appears that the location is full, it might be necessary to refresh the page multiple times to make an appointment.
