    How and where to get vaccinated

    1. See if you’re eligible

    The COVID-19 vaccine is being rolled out in phases determined by the state. See which groups are currently eligible for the vaccine.

    You must make an appointment to get the vaccine, even when you’re eligible to get it.

    2. Find a vaccine site and make an appointment

    Vaccines are being distributed by health-care providers, hospital clinics, pharmacies, urgent care centers, and community vaccination sites.

    4. Keep taking safety precautions

    • Wear a mask. (It’s required when you ride with us.)
    • Wash your hands and use hand sanitizer often.
    • Maintain a safe social distance when you can.
    • Stay home if you feel sick.

    The vaccines have been shown to protect people from COVID-19. We don’t know if they keep you from spreading the virus to someone else. Keep doing your part to keep New York healthy.
