Things To Know Before Scheduling Your Appointment

You can now schedule appointments at the below vaccination sites.  You will need to complete the NYS COVID-19 Vaccine Form (PDF) in order to get vaccinated. NYS requires the provider administering the vaccine to check that you completed the form.

In addition, you will need to bring proof of employment, such as an employee ID card, a letter from your employer or affiliated organization, or a recent pay stub.

Before you visit a site for your vaccination, keep in mind the following tips:

  • Reschedule your appointment if you are not feeling well on the day of your appointment.
