I thought it would be a good idea to give some accurate and informative information about vaccines. This will include; the different vaccines available, who is eligible to get them, and how to access them.
What are the different vaccines Available?
Currently, there are three kinds of coronavirus vaccines available to people in the USA.
Who is eligible to get the vaccines?
*Disclaimer - this is focusing on the vaccine requirements in NY because each state has different rules. We recently reached a MAJOR milestone in the COVID-19 vaccine rollout process. On Tuesday, April 6th, it was announced that any New York resident over the age of 16 could receive a COVID-19 vaccination! It is important to note that those who are 16 or 17 are only able to get the Pfizer-BioNTech as the other two vaccines were not tested on that age group. Also, there is currently no vaccine available for those under 16.
How can I get vaccinated?
There are quite a few ways to find vaccine sites that you can access.
1. Use these sites to make an appointment:
3. You will need to complete the vaccine eligibility form after you have a confirmed appointment.
I am a member of today's youth. I am in 7th grade and attend The 30th Ave School. I always have a new idea that I want to execute and this is one that I am particularly proud of. I hope you enjoy my stories and hopefully the stories of many others. Once again, we all have a voice. I look forward to hearing yours.
