What makes NYC Vaccine List different from the websites we link to?
We show appointment availabilities without requiring you to register for an account or complete questionnaires. We hope this simplification of the vaccine search process will save you time and reduces stress.
Is the Covid-19 vaccine safe?
The COVID-19 vaccine is safe and effective. The sooner we all get vaccinated, the sooner life in New York will return to normal.
Am I eligible to get vaccinated?
Consult the NYC Vaccine Eligibility guidelines to read about whether you are in an eligible group. The NY State site has a questionnaire you can use if you're still unsure. You can keep up with the latest updates from NYC here.
I need help getting transportation to my appointment.
Free assistance is available for seniors (age 65+) through Medicard, Access-a-ride, Curb, and Hunter Ambulettes. See the Transportation for Seniors section for contact information and hours of operation. (via @nycslotshots)
Where does the data come from?
We check locations listed on the city's Vaccine Finder through a combination of scripts and manual checks. If you know of a location we should add, let us know via the contact form. For more detail, see the how it works page.
Are all locations that don't have explicit restrictions mentioned open to everyone?
Please consider others when making your appointment. Certain minority communities have been disproportionately affected by COVID-19. By not claiming vaccines from clinics that were set up to aid such communities, you are helping city efforts to address this disparity. Please contact the location first if you're unsure about whether to book an appointment at a clinic location outside of your neighborhood.
The site shows available appointments, but when I clicked I couldn't book. What happened?
Some locations may show appointments that can't be booked, or someone else may have booked the appointment in the time between when we posted the opening and when you loaded this page. We do not know for sure since we're not affiliated with the groups that have the appointments.
What is a "second dose" location?
A second dose location is vaccine site which only has appointments available for second doses. If you have not had your first dose yet, these locations will not work for you.
Can you expand this site to cover another city and/or state?
We are focusing our efforts on the New York City area for the time being. Visit FindYourVaccine.org for coverage in other US states. Please feel free to send links, or get in touch using the feedback form if you'd like to help!
For the locations that require proof of occupation, what if the person is not currently employed but meets the vaccination age requirement?
You only need proof of occupation if that is your means of eligibility—i.e. teacher, first responder, etc.
