Residents across the city with certain underlying health conditions will begin getting vaccinated against the coronavirus at state-run facilities today.
Appointments are limited, but the state's "Am I Eligible" screening tool updates availability on a rolling basis.
People who have cancer, obesity, chronic kidney disease, pulmonary disease, asthma, heart and neurological conditions, those who are pregnant and others are now eligible for the vaccine.
The Jacob Javits Center is one state-run location where people can get vaccinated. There was a steady flow of New Yorkers at the Javits Center Monday despite reports of people having a difficult time making appointments.
New Yorkers with comorbidities must show proof of their condition by bringing a doctor's note or other medical proof of their conditions.
