The Hunt for a Vaccine: More Places to Try


More information about where to get vaccines is emerging daily. While some locations in New York City are limiting allocations to neighborhood residents, more vaccine locales and pop-up sites are opening up in Westchester.

For instance we heard of several people who went to the Armory in Washington Heights to get vaccinated. They did not live in the area but were given the vaccine. Now this site is out for Scarsdale residents. However appointments for second doses there will be honored.

A note says, “New York-Presbyterian today announced new guidelines for the vaccination process at its Armory Vaccination Center in Washington Heights. Effective immediately, 100% of new appointments at the Center will be for New York City residents, and a minimum of 60% of all those appointment slots will be reserved for eligible residents of the Washington Heights, Inwood, Northern and Central Harlem, and South Bronx communities. (All existing appointments, including those for second vaccination doses, will be fully honored)."

NYC Vaccine List

Another website to check vaccination availability in New York City is This site checks the websites of clinics, pharmacies, and other locations that may have vaccines. If they find an available vaccine, a 'Sign Up' button will appear and take you directly to the website of the location with availability.

Westchester Community College

In addition, Westchester Community College has partnered with the Westchester County Department of Health to convert its Physical Education building into a temporary vaccination facility. To protect the health and safety of the community at large, the College has established a process to separate those coming onto campus for the vaccine from students and employees who utilize the campus facilities for college purposes. No one is permitted on campus for a vaccine without an appointment.
