Protect yourself and others from severe illness or hospitalization from the Delta variant of Covid-19 — and earn $100 at city-run sites too!
COVID-19 VACCINATION INFORMATION
The pandemic is not over. The highly contagious Delta variant is spreading fast.
Most people sick, hospitalized or dying from the Delta variant have not been vaccinated.
In Brooklyn about 30% - 40% of eligible residents have not been vaccinated.
Please note: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warns that the delta variant, which is now the dominant strain of COVID-19 in New York City, can spread even more easily than was previously thought.
All New Yorkers, whether vaccinated or not, are urged to wear masks in all public indoor settings, as well as in any setting when they do not know the vaccination status of those around them. See NYC Prevention and Care.
