This the City of New Rochelle with an update on the COVID vaccine, including new information since yesterday’s announcement.

Effective today, the State has expanded vaccine eligibility to include anyone 65 or older.   To repeat, anyone 65 or older is now eligible for the COVID vaccine.

Reservations are required.  To schedule your appointment, visit or call the State hotline at 833-NYS-4-VAX.  That’s 833-697-4829.

Vaccinating millions of New Yorkers is an overwhelming logistical challenge, and many residents have experienced obstacles and delays.  State authorities have committed to expanding the number of vaccination sites, and we expect that the process will become more efficient over time.  But, for now, patience and persistence are necessary.  

Please remember also that this phase of vaccination will extend over several months, so while you should try to make your appointment as soon as possible, the scheduled date of your vaccination might still be a ways off.

The COVID vaccine is safe and effective – and essential to the recovery of our community and nation.  If you’re eligible, please schedule your vaccine at or by calling 833-NYS-4-VAX.
