Written by Chris Boyle  |  04. May 2021

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo has announced that going forward, all New York State mass vaccination sites will be Open to eligible New Yorkers for walk-in vaccination on a first come, first serve basis for all. The walk-in appointments are reserved for first doses only with second doses to be scheduled automatically after administration of the initial shot. Additionally, all vaccine providers are encouraged to likewise allow walk-in appointments and for eligible New Yorkers.
 
"The more New Yorkers who get vaccinated, the faster we will defeat the COVID-19 pandemic and rebuild a new and better state and economy for everyone," Governor Cuomo said. "That's why it's critical for us to make the vaccine as accessible as possible and provide more opportunities for New Yorkers to get vaccinated. This new accommodation means any eligible adult will be able to walk into any mass vaccination site and walk out with a shot in arm, eliminating the need to make an appointment online or by phone. We'll continue to work 24/7 to get the vaccine to communities across the state so everyone can benefit."
 
This announcement adds to New York State's ongoing efforts to make the COVID-19 vaccine more accessible.
