In this blog post we cover New York’s COVID-19 vaccine information and qualifications. As of January 11, New York has expanded the list of qualified persons who can receive the coronavirus (or COVID-19) vaccine. On February 15, this list was expanded even further.
Beginning March 17, the following essential workers are eligible:
- Public-facing government and public employees
- Not-for-profit workers who provide public-facing services to New Yorkers in need
- Essential in-person public-facing building service workers
If you are located in a state other than NY, you should research that state’s vaccine rollout as it may be different. The CDC website may also include some useful information.
Starting March 30, all NY residents aged 30 and up will be able to schedule and receive their vaccines. On April 6, this will expand to include New Yorkers aged 16 and over.
