Important COVID-19 Vaccine News

Advocacy WORKS! NYS Home Delivered Meals and other food providers are officially included in the guidance for vaccine eligibility under Public Facing Grocers.
On February 4th, LiveOn NY sent a letter to Governor Cuomo respectfully and urgently requesting that home-delivered meal providers, food bank, and the entire charitable food network be made explicitly eligible for the vaccine under Phase 1B.

On February 11th, NY Nonprofit Media covered our advocacy efforts on this issue; and on February 17th, LiveOn NY testified at a NYC Council Hearing held jointly by the Committees on Health, Technology, and Aging, offering vaccine and COVID-19 response recommendations.

Effective March 1st, 2021, HDM staff and other charitable food providers are officially included in vaccine eligibilty under 1B. See below for the specific relevant language (new in yellow):

  • Public Facing Grocery Store Workers, including convenience stores, bodegas, regional food banks, food pantries, and permitted home-delivered meal programs,
  • Restaurant employees, including workers in permitted soup kitchen and congregate meal programs,
  • Home care workers and aides, hospice workers, personal care aides, and consumer-directed personal care workers,
  • Staff and residents of nursing homes, skilled nursing facilities, and adult care facilities, and
  • New York residents age 65 and older.

LiveOn NY also has a webpage dedicated specifically to vaccine updates and information. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Katelyn Andrews at kandrews@liveon-ny.org.

Thank you for your partnership and voices,
LiveOn NY
