Vaccines are an important way to fight COVID-19. Millions of New Yorkers have received their vaccines at clinics, pharmacies, and state-run vaccination sites. In order to reach more New Yorkers, the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) is administering vaccines to thousands of homebound residents.
To be eligible, you must:
If you qualify, the first step is to fill out an interest form. (A caregiver, family member, or friend can fill out the form for the eligible person.)
You can also call the NYC Vaccine Hotline at 1-877-VAX-4NYC (1-877-829-4692).
After July 2, 2021, VNSNY will no longer be part of the NYC in-home vaccination program. Eligible residents interested in signing up can fill out the NYC interest form.
If you do not qualify for in-home vaccination, it is still important to get your COVID-19 vaccine! You can find out where they are offered and make an appointment using the NYC Vaccine Finder. Learn more about the benefits of the vaccine.
Many countries and many companies worked together to develop the COVID-19 vaccines. The different vaccines went through extensive studies and trials. The FDA and safety boards reviewed data from these trials at every stage.
