NYS LMTs want to know: When can we get our vaccines? According to the New York Covid-19 Vaccination website, we are currently in Phase 1A of the vaccine distribution. As a health care worker who has direct contact with patients, you may be eligible to receive a Covid-19 vaccination as early as this week. If you would like to know if you are eligible, please click here Am I Eligible?
When advocating for yourself, please remember that Licensed Massage Therapists are Title VIII healthcare professionals and “medically necessary massage” is considered “essential” per the Cluster Initiative.
Additionally, the AMTA-NY Government Relations team will continue to inform our members as more information becomes available.

While vaccination is a personal choice, your Government Relations team will continue to inform our members of the most up to date information regarding the NYS vaccination plans for the benefit of members who choose to get vaccinated.
