New York has moved to Phase 1B of COVID-19 vaccine distribution. This means, in addition to healthcare workers and other frontline staff, the vaccine is now available to: people age 65+, education workers, first responders, public transit workers, and public safety workers. If you fall into these categories, you should reach out to your primary care physician for guidance. And, to find out if you're eligible to be vaccinated & to make an appointment in NYC, visit nyc.gov/vaccinelocations. You can also visit the NY State Health Department for more information, including eligibility requirements, at covid19vaccine.health.ny.gov.
