Please be advised that the categories of individuals who are eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine continues to be expanded by the NYS Department of Health. The list will continue to change as federal and state guidance changes and more vaccines become available. 

For a list of resources to help confirm eligibility, register, and schedule vaccination appointments in NY, please see below: 

  • ​​​​​To check your eligibility to receive a COVID vaccine at a NYS-run vaccination site, visit the NYS  “Am I Eligible” Website, or call 833.NYS.4.VAX (833.697.4829)
  • To find appointments at a NYC-run vaccination site, please visit the NYC COVID-19 Vaccine Finder Website. You may also schedule appointments within the five boroughs by going online or by calling 1-877-VAX-4NYC  (877.829.4692) ​​
  • For the latest vaccine news and information about eligibility, appointments, and evolving University guidance, visit CUNY’s Coronavirus Webpage, which contains the latest vaccine information, including eligibility updates and links to federal, state, and city resources on how and where to receive vaccinations.

​Individuals who obtain vaccination appointments will be asked to bring proof of eligibility. If eligibility is due to occupation, the proof of eligibility may be an employee ID card, a pay stub, etc., depending on the specific priority status. Consistent with legislation signed by Governor Cuomo​, all CUNY employees will be granted up to four hours of excused leave per injection associated with receiving COVID-19 vaccinations. The leave will not be charged against any other leave the employee has earned or accrued. In addition, as part of CUNY’s  #VaxUpCUNY Campaign, members of the CUNY community are invited to submit​ photos and messages of themselves receiving their vaccinations in an effort to dispel the widespread fear and hesitancy that surround the vaccines. You can also join the campaign by posting your photos on social media and using the hashtag #VaxUpCUNY.

We thank you for your efforts in helping keep the CSI community safe. We will continue to share information about vaccinations as it becomes available.

Stay safe.
