New Yorkers as young as age 30 will be eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine starting Tuesday, Governor Andrew Cuomo announced today.

All adults in the state — from age 16 and up — will be eligible for the vaccine a week later on April 6.

Residents as young as 30 can begin scheduling appointments and receiving the vaccine tomorrow as soon as 8 a.m.

The same time a week later — at 8 a.m. on April 6 — the entire adult population will be able to schedule and get the shot.

President Joe Biden had recommended states designate all adults eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine on May 1, but many states are moving ahead of that schedule.

Last week, Cuomo lowered the vaccine eligibility age minimum to 50 years old from 60 years old.

Eligible New Yorkers can make a vaccine appointment by visiting https://vax4nyc.nyc.gov/patient/s/ or calling 877-VAX-4NYC or 877-829-4692.

More than 9 million doses — including first and second — of the vaccine have been administered statewide. Almost 30 percent of New Yorkers have received at least one dose and nearly 16 percent have been fully vaccinated for COVID-19.
