The COVID-19 Vaccination Hotline is open 7AM – 10PM, 7 days a week, for scheduling vaccination appointments for eligible New Yorkers: 1-833-NYS-4-VAX (1-833-697-4829).

Nassau County has launched a dedicated hotline to assist seniors in scheduling vaccine appointments.
Call 516-227-9590 Monday-Sunday 9:00 am-4:45 pm.

The first COVID-19 vaccines are here. Due to limited supply from the federal government, availability is limited. More and more New Yorkers will become eligible as the vaccine supply increases. While the vaccination process is underway, every New Yorker should wear a mask, social distance, and avoid small and large gatherings.

Three vaccines have been authorized by the FDA and approved by New York State’s independent COVID-19 Clinical Advisory Task Force: Pfizer and BioNTech (two doses), Moderna (two doses), and Johnson & Johnson (one dose).

**Three new vaccination sites have just opened in Nassau County and eligible New Yorkers may begin making appointments as soon as March 19. Call 1-833-NYS-4-VAX or visit
