Message from NY State Health Department: New York State will distribute the COVID-19 vaccine in phases based on need and risk.
New Yorkers who are more likely to be exposed to the virus, and who are more likely to become seriously ill if they get COVID-19, will be offered the vaccine first. Both the federal government and New York State have developed plans to ensure that everyone will be able to get a COVID-19 vaccine as soon as large quantities are available, at no cost no matter where they live.
Thousands of health care providers will be able to offer vaccination, including doctors’ offices, retail pharmacies, hospitals, and Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) of priority groups. The State Department of Health will share additional information on where New Yorkers can get vaccinated as more vaccine doses become available.
