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 many New Yorkers. They are intended to help people boost their immunity from the initial vaccination series

Pfizer and Moderna Vaccine Recipients

The following people are now eligible for a booster shot of the vaccine, if they received two doses of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine at least six months ago:

  • People 65 or older
  • People 18 to 64 and either have an underlying medical condition or a higher risk of COVID-19 exposure due to their job (for example, health care workers) or where they live or frequently visit (for example, a homeless shelter)
  • People living in a nursing home or other long-term care facility

People who received two shots of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine should try to get the same vaccine as their booster, but they have the choice to receive any of the three types of vaccine authorized in the U.S.

Johnson & Johnson Vaccine Recipients

Anyone 18 or older who received the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine at least two months ago can now get a booster shot of any of the three types of vaccines authorized in the U.S. Limited data shows that a Moderna or Pfizer booster could result in higher antibody levels.

If you are not sure which type of vaccine you should get, talk to your health care provider.

What about me?

Individuals 5+ are able to book vaccine appointments at many locations throughout the city using the NYC Vaccine Finder or by calling 1-877-VAX-4NYC. Check back here for additional updates or text COVID to 692-692 to receive real-time updates on vaccine distribution.

Vaccinations at home

Anyone living in the five boroughs can register here to be contacted by the City to schedule an in-home vaccine

Read about our plan to vaccinate fully homebound New Yorkers.

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

Get up-to-date COVID-19 vaccine data about how vaccine distribution is progressing in New York City.

Interagency Expertise

The Vaccine Command Center is led by Deputy Mayor Melanie Hartzog and NYC Health Commissioner Dave Chokshi, but it brings together experts from across city government. More than a dozen City agencies will conduct operations through the Center, including the Health Department, Health + Hospitals, Emergency Management, the Mayor's Office and the Task Force on Racial Equity.
