It has never been easier to get vaccinated against COVID-19 in NYC. People 12 and older can now go to vaccination sites citywide without an appointment. There are services available for people who need help getting to a site or other reasonable accommodations.

A fully vaccinated person is much less likely to get sick or spread the virus that causes COVID-19. Any activity is safer when you are vaccinated, and in most settings you will not need to wear a face covering or stay 6 feet away from others.

New Data Page on Variants/Strains

Our new Variants Data page tracks the testing and spread in NYC of variants of the virus that causes COVID-19. NYC is monitoring strains — types of variants that show meaningful differences in how they function — and other variants that have been identified and reported here.

As more New Yorkers are vaccinated, the spread of COVID-19 is slowing in New York City and throughout the United States. This moment could be a turning point in our fight against COVID-19, and you can do your part by getting vaccinated.
