Since December 2020, several Covid-19 vaccination sites have opened on Long Island, and hundreds of thousands of Long Islanders have been vaccinated. However, for many, the vaccine may seem far from reach. 

With demand for the vaccine so high, appointments have been hard to come by. It can also be confusing for some people to navigate all the different entities managing these sites, including New York State, Nassau and Suffolk counties, and pharmacies. 

Here is a list of vaccination sites on Long Island so you can keep track and make your appointment when they become available. Currently, those in phases 1A and 1B are eligible. We will update this page as more vaccination sites open.

State Sites

New York State runs two vaccination sites on Long Island — one in Nassau and one in Suffolk. To see if appointments are available, visit the state’s vaccine website, fill out the “check eligibility” form, and review the list of sites and their availability. There is also the option to call the state’s vaccination hotline at 1-833-NYS-4-VAX (1-833-697-4829).
