Due to the recommendation from the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the City is pausing administration of the Johnson and Johnson vaccine as of Tuesday, April 13.

Out of an abundance of caution, if you have a vaccine appointment to receive the Johnson and Johnson vaccine at an NYC Health + Hospitals or Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) site, it may be rescheduled. If your appointment is rescheduled you will receive an email with the new details of your appointment. For other appointments that may be booked you will be rescheduled and contacted by your provider. You will receive the Moderna or Pfizer vaccine instead of the Johnson and Johnson vaccine until there is further guidance from Federal agencies.

The CDC is investigating a few cases related to the Johnson and Johnson vaccine and should have more information soon.

If you have received the Johnson & Johnson / Janssen vaccine in the past three weeks and are having any of the following symptoms, contact your health care provider:

  • Severe headache
  • Abdominal pain
  • Leg pain
  • Shortness of breath

The COVID-19 vaccine can prevent COVID-19 symptoms and severe COVID-19 illness.

There are currently three COVID-19 vaccines authorized by the Food and Drug Administration:

  • Pfizer-BioNTech
  • Moderna
  • Johnson and Johnson

The vaccines are administered through shots in the arm. The Pfizer and Moderna vaccines require two doses taken 3 to 4 weeks apart. 

An appointment is required to get a vaccine. All New Yorkers 16 years of age and older are eligible to be vaccinated. People who work or study in New York are also eligible.

If you are ages 16 or 17, you may only receive the Pfizer vaccine at this time. Minors must have parental, guardian or legal custodian consent, unless the minor is part of a group to whom the law gives the right to consent to their own care (e.g., married minors, minors who are parents or pregnant, and minors in the military). A parent or legal guardian should accompany a minor to their vaccination or must be available by phone at the time of the minor’s vaccination to provide verbal consent to the provider.

The vaccine is free for all New Yorkers, regardless of immigration status. If you have insurance, it may be billed, but you will not be charged a copay or other fee.

The Vaccine Finder is an online tool that can help you find the closest site to your location. You cannot search by which of the 3 vaccines is provided.

The Finder lists:

  • NYC Health + Hospitals sites
  • City-run mass vaccination sites (mega sites)
  • State-run sites, such as York College or Medgar Evers College 
  • Privately-run sites, such as urgent care centers and pharmacies *

* Pharmacies can only vaccinate people who are 30 years and older AND teachers, school staff, childcare workers, and people with eligible underlying conditions. All other sites can vaccinate any eligible person.

Each site listed in the Vaccine Finder includes a link or phone number to schedule an appointment. 

There is limited supply of vaccine from the federal government at this time. You may not see open appointments on the Vaccine Finder right now, but check back regularly. New appointments will open up once more supply becomes available. If you can’t find an appointment, please try again later. New locations and appointment slots are added every day.

If you don’t have internet access, you can schedule an appointment with the Vaccine Reservation Call Center. However, the reservation center can ONLY schedule an appointment for Health + Hospitals and NYC Department of Health vaccination sites. Translators are available.

What You Need to Bring

Before you can get a vaccine, you must fill out the New York State COVID-19 Vaccine Form. You can complete it online and bring your submission ID, or you can complete the form at your vaccination site.

You will get an email confirmation with a QR code if you have completed the screening questions. If you haven’t received the QR Code and your appointment is today, you should attend your appointment and finish processing at the facility.

You also need to bring proof of eligibility to your appointment.

Proof of Eligibility

You must bring proof that you live and work in New York City.

Proof of residency may include:

  • State or government-issued ID
  • Statement from your landlord
  • Current rent receipt or lease
  • Mortgage records
  • Both a statement from another person and current mail or school records

If you're eligible based on your employment, you must also bring proof of employment such as a:

If you're eligible for the vaccine due to an underlying condition, you do not need documentation from your personal health care provider or any other proof of your condition to get a vaccine in NYC. It is only necessary for you to self-certify you have an underlying condition that makes you eligible. You will be asked to self-certify as part of the appointment scheduling process, or a vaccine provider will ask you to complete a certification document before or at the time of your appointment.

You may not be required to certify your condition if you are vaccinated by your usual health care provider.

At these locations, the van will offer approximately 200 vaccine doses per day, for a range of one to three days. Local community-based organizations will help New Yorkers schedule vaccination appointments with the vaccine fleet ahead of time. The fleet will also accept walk-up appointments when available. 

Additionally, the City will assist with outreach to the community, helping to coordinate with local community-based organizations, elected officials, and industry groups to engage communities, post flyers, promote these opportunities, and fill these appointments. Vans will have live interpretation on site and vaccine materials in 12 languages.

Mobile Sites for Restaurant and Delivery Workers

Promobile Kitchen will operate this first bus, Daybreak Health will administer vaccine doses, and Relief Opportunities for All Restaurants (ROAR) will lead outreach efforts to restaurant workers, helping them sign up for appointments ahead of time and on site.
