New Yorkers 50 and older can walk in and get a
COVID-19 vaccine at these NYC locations
BY ROBERT POZARYCKI
Any New Yorker 50 years of age
and older can now walk into a city-run
vaccine site and get their COVID-19
vaccine without pre-scheduling an
appointment, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced
“Our priority for the next few
months is clear: we need to vaccinate
as many New Yorkers as possible,” said
de Blasio. “By making it easier for New
Yorkers 50 and older to get vaccinated,
we are on our way to fully vaccinating
fi ve million New Yorkers by June.”
The change took effect on April 17;
previously, the city-run vaccine sites
were open to walk-ins who were 75
years of age and older.
More than 5 million vaccine doses
have already been administered in
New York City to date. Though the city
had contended with supply issues for
months, a new problem has seemingly
surfaced: the overabundance of open
“With more than 5 million doses of
the COVID-19 vaccine administered,
we’re making incredible progress vaccinating
New York City, but the job is not
fi nished — we know we still have more
New Yorkers to reach with this life-saving
resource,” said Deputy Mayor for
Health and Human Services Melanie
Hartzog. “Expanding walk-up appointments
to New Yorkers 50 and older is
yet another way we’re working to make
the vaccine as accessible as possible —
and an example of how we will continue
to adapt our strategies and expand our
efforts to take our progress further.”
