NY State Expands COVID Vaccine Eligibility

New York State on Tuesday expanded COVID-19 vaccine eligibility, with all New Yorkers age 60 and older will eligible to receive the vaccine effective Wednesday. Public-facing essential workers from governmental and nonprofit entities will be eligible beginning March 17, as will public-facing essential building services workers.

Additionally, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced that with increased supply of the vaccine, restrictions on which segments of the eligible population specific providers can vaccinate will be relaxed to align with the expanded eligibility on March 17.

Previously, certain types of providers were directed to focus their vaccination efforts on specific populations to ensure equitable vaccine distribution.

“New York is marching forward expanding access to the COVID-19 vaccine, addressing underserved communities and getting shots in arms as we turn the tide in the fight against this virus,” said Cuomo. “The fight against the COVID beast continues on all fronts.”
