COVID-19 Vaccines

All in favor of a COVID-19 vaccine, raise your arm.

Safe and effective COVID-19 vaccines are now available in New York City to help us end the COVID-19 pandemic. They are easily available to most New Yorkers and all vaccinations are free.

Where are we now?

It has never been easier to get a COVID-19 vaccination in NYC. People 5 and older are eligible for the vaccine. Those who are fully vaccinated can more safely gather with friends and enjoy other benefits of vaccination, so get your shot today.

Many vaccination sites in the city no longer require appointments. See a list of sites where you can get a walk-up vaccination today.

To find a vaccination site near you, including those that take appointments, use the City's Vaccine Finder (not accessible with Internet Explorer). Note, people who are 5 to 17 years old can only receive the Pfizer vaccine.

Certain individuals are now eligible for a booster shot of the Pfizer vaccine, if they have received two doses of Pfizer at least last six months ago. This shot is intended to help many people boost their immunity from the initial vaccination series, which may have decreased over time. Go to nyc.gov/covidvaccine to learn more about COVID-19 vaccine booster shots. At this time, you will only be able to get a Pfizer booster shot if you received a second Pfizer dose at least six months ago. There are no exceptions. Additional guidance on boosters for other COVID-19 vaccine brands will be shared as soon as it is set by the federal government.

People who are moderately to severely immunocompromised (meaning they have a weakened immune system) are now eligible for a third dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine. Learn more about third doses for people who are immunocompromised from the Department of Health & Mental Hygiene's recommendations.

Vaccine Authorized for Children

The Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine is now available for children ages 5 to 11. The vaccine dose for this age group is smaller than the dose given to people 12 and older.

Children can get vaccinated at their doctor’s office, pharmacies and vaccine sites across the city.

Booster Shots

Vaccine booster shots are now available for all fully vaccinated people 12 and older. These shots boost your immunity from an initial vaccination series.

We recommend a booster shot for any adult who received the second dose of the Pfizer vaccine at least five months ago, the second dose of the Moderna vaccine at least six months ago, or the one dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine at least two months ago.

Your booster shot can be any of the three authorized or approved vaccines. We recommend you get either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine for your booster shot, unless you are unable to do so. If you have questions, talk to your health care provider or call 311. People ages 12 to 17 can only receive the Pfizer booster shot.

Walk-up vaccination sites

Most city-run sites are offering walk-up vaccinations without an appointment, including for individuals 5 years and older. You can find the closest wall-up site to you by visiting NYC Vaccine Finder and clicking the "Walk-ups" toggle button.

NYC Mobile & Pop-Up Vaccine Sites

To better meet New Yorkers where they live, work, go to school, and play, NYC has deployed temporary, roaming vaccination sites across the City. There are two versions of these temporary sites: mobile and pop-up. All are fully equipped with in-take personnel and nurses to safely and conveniently administer the vaccine and observe patients. Appointments are not required, but you can book an appointment at many of these sites in advance online or by calling 877-VAX-4NYC.

Vaccine Command Center

The NYC COVID-19 Vaccine Command Center is a dedicated interagency effort created by the Mayor's Office to coordinate vaccine distribution throughout the city.

The Center will ensure all New Yorkers have up-to-date information about the vaccine and its benefits. To build trust in a safe and effective vaccine, the Center will deploy outreach teams to provide science-based facts and address misinformation. These teams also will coordinate with elected officials and community leaders on neighborhood vaccination drives.

The Center will provide rapid response for public and private partners, including urgent cares, private pharmacies, hospitals and community vaccination sites.

Tracking Data

Through the Center, the City is closely monitoring how many vaccine doses have been:

  • Reserved by the federal government for NYC
  • Delivered to NYC
  • Given to people in NYC
