Governor Cuomo announced this morning that New York has entered Phase 1B of its COVID vaccination plan. All Personal Assistants and healthcare workers can still make appointments. People who are now eligible include:
People ages 75 and older
Teachers and education workers
Public safety workers
Public transit workers
While NYS resources direct individuals to the same Eligibility Checker website to make their appointments, we note that at the time of writing, the website appears to be undergoing maintenance. At 4 p.m. Monday (Jan. 11th), the state will open a vaccination hotline to schedule appointments at 1-833-NYS-4-VAX (1-833-697-4829).
