Where Do I Get My Vaccine?
Statewide, you can be vaccinated at a hospital, retail pharmacy, doctor’s office, church, community center, public housing complex, cultural center or one of several mass vaccination clinics across the state. Find your closest location at Am I Eligible. You may also live near a Walgreens or CVS location that offers vaccines.
New York City has its own location-finding tool, and many locations of Walgreens and Duane Reade, Rite Aid and Costco are also offering vaccines. Eligible Bronx residents may go to Yankee Stadium 24/7 for vaccinations. Simply schedule your appointment online or by calling 1-833-766-6769. Citi Field is also operating 24/7 as a mass vaccination site, with half the appointments reserved for Queens residents and half for TLC licensees and food delivery workers. Those eligible can make vaccine appointments here or by calling 877-VAX-4NYC.
The City is also providing free transportation to vaccine appointments for anyone 65 and over. While scheduling your appointment at a City-operated site, you’ll be asked if you have a way to get to and from your appointment. If you require transportation, you’ll be screened and directed to options including Access-a-Ride, ambulette services and cab services.
