Vaccines begin Monday for next group of eligible NYers, including teachers, people ages 75+
New York residents in group 1B can begin making their appointment to be vaccinated against coronavirus Monday.
The group is composed of teachers, first responders, public safety workers, transit workers and anyone over the age of 75 - totaling 3.2 million people.
Those who qualify can go to the state Department of Health website for a virtual application.
After you show you're eligible for the vaccine, the site will provide a local facility and time for your appointment.
The state is still continuing to vaccinate the earlier group, including health care workers so the demand for vaccine appointments is set to increase.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed an executive order to expand the workers who can be trained to administer the vaccine to get the job done as efficiently as possible.
He says it will take 14 weeks to vaccinate all of phases 1A and 1B at the current rate that the state is receiving vaccines.
