PLWHA and People Ages 12 and Older Now Eligible for COVID-19 Vaccines

People living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA) and people ages 12 years and older are now eligible to receive COVID-19 vaccines.

City-run vaccination sites do not require appointments, but if you want to schedule an appointment you can do so easily by going to or calling 877-VAX-4NYC.

NYC will also bring the vaccine to you! Anyone living in the five boroughs can register for an in-home vaccination at or by calling 877-VAX-4NYC.

Before Your Appointment
You will need to complete the New York State (NYS) COVID-19 Vaccine Form found at in order to get vaccinated. NYS requires the healthcare provider administering the vaccine to check that you completed the form.

You must bring proof of age to your vaccination. You will not need to provide proof of immigration status or a social security number to get vaccinated. ID is only required for proof of age. When you receive the vaccine, your privacy will be protected.

Before you visit a vaccination site, keep the following tips in mind:

  • Reschedule your appointment if you are not feeling well on the day of your appointment.
  • Wear a face covering to your appointment. You will not be allowed into the site without one.
