You are eligible!
Let's End This Pandemic Together!
As of April 6, 2021, all New Yorkers 16 years and older are eligible to receive the coronavirus vaccine anywhere in New York! We want to make sure our students are receiving the most up to date, accurate information about the vaccine, securing an appointment and what to expect. It is essential that we protect ourselves, our families and our communities through safe and effective immunizations. The sooner our Maverick community is vaccinated, the safer and more successful our upcoming semesters will be. #MavsGetVaxxed
Why get the COVID-19 vaccine?
Everyone has a reason to get vaccinated. Here are the top eight reasons why we believe getting vaccinated is the way to go:
Protect yourself and your community
It’s free, even if you don't have health insurance
Vaccines have been tested for safety and effectiveness under strict regulations
They are highly effective at preventing COVID-19
Even if you do get COVID-19 after you are vaccinated, the vaccine protects you from getting seriously ill
Don’t pause your life because you get sick. Keep your life moving forward and don’t miss a beat
Keep your cash flowing. Prevent having to be out of work and losing money
Be able to get the full college experience and get on the path back to normalcy
