Make an Appointment
Visit nyc.gov/vaccinefinder to find out where you can get vaccinated. Appointments are available at many sites across NYC. All appointments must be made in advance. You can also call 877-VAX-4NYC (877-829-4692) to make an appointment at NYC sites.
Before Your Appointment
You will need to complete the New York State (NYS) COVID-19 Vaccine Form found at vaccineform.health.ny.gov in order to get vaccinated. NYS requires the healthcare provider administering the vaccine to check that you completed the form.
You will also need to bring proof of employment, such as an employee ID card, letter from your employer or affiliated organization, or recent pay stub. If you are eligible for a vaccine based on your age, you must be able to show proof of age.
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.
