Boosters

Per the City of New York:

Vaccine booster shots are now available for all fully vaccinated people 12 and older. These shots boost your immunity from an initial vaccination series.

We recommend a booster shot for any adult who received the second dose of the Pfizer vaccine at least five months ago, the second dose of the Moderna vaccine at least six months ago, or the one dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine at least two months ago.

Your booster shot can be any of the three authorized or approved vaccines. We recommend you get either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine for your booster shot, unless you are unable to do so. If you have questions, talk to your health care provider or call 311. People ages 12 to 17 can only receive the Pfizer booster shot.

Boosters are free, safe and available to anyone regardless of insurance or immigration status.

NYC Vaccine Referral Bonus Program

The City has initiated a new opportunity for civic, faith, tenant and other associations for referring their community members to receive the vaccine.

The newly announced NYC Vaccine Referral Bonus Program is meant to incentivize community- and faith-based organizations to help get people vaccinated, by awarding $100 for each first dose vaccination referral at a City-run site. When an individual makes an appointment ahead of time or as a walk-up, they can choose which community organization referred them to get vaccinated. Once they receive their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, the referral organization will be credited $100. Organizations can earn up to $20,000 each.

Interested organizations can sign up at: nyc.gov/vaccinereferralbonus
