Availability and Phased Roll-out
While availability is limited in the initial weeks of the vaccination program, more and more New Yorkers will become eligible as the vaccine supply increases. In-person college instructors, including graduate teaching assistants and those teaching a blended format (A/B), are included in Phase 1b and can begin scheduling appointments with individual providers, including pharmacies, local health departments, and hospitals. You are responsible for making your own appointment. You must bring proof of eligibility to a vaccination site, which may include an employee ID card, a letter from an employer or affiliated organization, or a pay stub, depending on the specific priority.
Note that RIT community members may be eligible for the vaccine outside of their role at RIT.
