Earlier today, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced the opening of the New York State-FEMA mass vaccination sites in Albany, Buffalo, Rochester, and Yonkers. These sites are part of New York State's ongoing efforts to fight vaccine hesitancy and bring the vaccine to communities underserved by traditional health care institutions. Eligible New Yorkers are able to schedule appointments by utilizing New York's 'Am I Eligible' website or by calling the state's COVID-19 Vaccination Hotline at 1-833-NYS-4-VAX (1-833-697-4829). Appointments are available to eligible New Yorkers within the host county, with the exception of the Albany site which also serves residents from Rensselaer and Schenectady Counties. Appointments can also be made by visiting the sites as supply allows.
