The following are the steps involved with obtaining a COVID-19 vaccination:
- Schedule an appointment by phone or online (keep trying if you do not get through or cannot get an appointment right away)
- Complete the NYS COVID-19 Vaccine Form before getting the vaccine. The State requires the provider administering the vaccine to check completion of the form.
Complete the form online: https://forms.ny.gov/s3/vaccine,

- You must wear a face covering and social distance while at the vaccine site
- If you do not feel well on the day of your appointment, please stay home and reschedule your appointment
Additionally, New Yorkers will need to bring proof of eligibility. Eligible essential workers will need to bring proof of employment, such as an employee ID card, a letter from an employer or affiliated organization, or a recent pay stub.
