Vaccine Appointments Continue to be Available to NYC Health + Hospitals Staff
NYC Health + Hospitals vaccination sites will continue to prioritize vaccinations to our workforce. We will also continue to offer the scheduled second doses, as that supply has been reserved. NYC Health + Hospitals employees can schedule their vaccination appointment by visiting the staff scheduler. Eligible staff include those who
- work in an acute care facility/hospital or clinic/FQHC/Gotham where they may have direct or indirect contact with COVID-19 patients or infectious materials or the general public, or
- work at any NYC Health + Hospitals or T2 location(s) where community testing, treatment, support or outreach to patients or clients is performed, or
- are a NYC Health + Hospitals essential employee supporting the provision of care at our health care facilities whose current job responsibilities require full-time or part-time in-person work.

Vaccination Appointments for Patients and the Public
Because of dwindling supply of vaccine in New York City, our health system will begin to cancel appointments for patients and other members of the public as needed, one day at a time, and for the following day only, depending on existing supply at each of our vaccination sites. Each facility will notify their patients before their scheduled vaccine time and offer those individuals the opportunity to reschedule - on a priority basis - once we have secured sufficient supply. We will also temporarily stop booking first dose appointments until additional supply becomes available.
Once first dose appointments for patients and the public become available again, those who are eligible must confirm that they live or work in New York City when making their appointment online or on the phone. For a complete a complete list of documentation those who are eligible can bring to their appointment as proof of eligibility, visit nyc.gov/covidvaccine.
