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 Saturday.
“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 five 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.
