ALBANY, N.Y. (WCAX) - More New Yorkers can now begin scheduling appointments to get a COVID-19 vaccine.

Those now eligible to get the vaccine include individuals 75 and older, first responders, public safety officers, teachers and other school staff, and in-person college instructors, child care workers, public-facing grocery store workers, transit workers and individuals living and working in homeless shelters.

Since federal supply severely limits the ability to distribute vaccines, New Yorkers are encouraged to remain patient and are advised not to show up at vaccination sites without an appointment.
