Restaurant Workers are Eligible for COVID-19 Vaccine

We are pleased to let you know that restaurant workers, including delivery workers, are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. Please share this information with your employees.

Where are the vaccination sites, and how do I make an appointment?

Find a vaccination location and make an appointment here: nyc.gov/vaccinefinder . You can also call 877-VAX-4NYC (877-829-4692) if you need help making an appointment at a City-run site.

All of the appointment slots were booked. What should I do?

We have a limited supply of vaccine from the federal government and vaccine is in high demand. New locations and appointment slots will be added regularly, so keep checking!

Will I have to pay for the vaccine?

No. There is no cost to be vaccinated. You will not be charged, even if you do not have health insurance. If you have insurance, it may be billed by the vaccination provider; however, you will not be charged a copayment or any other fee.

What will I need to bring to my appointment?

  • When you make your appointment, you will receive directions about completing an intake form and bringing proof of employment (an employee ID card or badge, a letter from an employer or a pay stub). Proof of employment will only be used to verify that you are eligible to be vaccinated; employment information will not be collected or recorded.
    • EMPLOYERS – Please provide your employees with a letter so they can be vaccinated. These letters are not retained so there are no IRS or immigration implications.
  • Please wear a face covering to the vaccination site. You will not be permitted to enter without one.
  • If you have health insurance, you may be asked to bring your insurance card.
  • If you are not feeling well on the day of your appointment, please reschedule.

Will I be fully vaccinated after my first vaccine dose?

No. The vaccines currently available require two doses spaced a few weeks apart to be fully effective.

How can I find out more about the vaccines?

Read this fact sheet to learn more about the COVID-19 vaccines, which have been shown to be safe and effective. Visit the NYC Health Department COVID-19 vaccine webpage at nyc.gov/covidvaccine for additional information and resources in multiple languages.

Can I stop wearing a face covering and physical distancing after being vaccinated?

No. We do not have enough information to say when it will be safe to stop wearing face coverings and physical distancing. Until we understand more about the protection that COVID-19 vaccines provide, everyone must continue to practice the key prevention measures.

Is the vaccine required by the Health Code?

The Health Code does not mandate the COVID-19 vaccination, but the NYC Health Department encourages all New Yorkers to be vaccinated.

Thank you for everything you do to reduce the spread of COVID-19. Share this flyer on vaccines, and keep doing what we know works - before and after vaccination:

  • Stay home, especially when sick or if you’ve been exposed to someone with COVID-19
  • Wash your hands
  • Wear a face covering whenever you're outside your house
  • Remain six feet apart from others
  • Get tested
