Three new New York State-run Covid-19 vaccine sites on Long Island will begin taking appointments Wednesday and will start vaccinating eligible members of the public on Friday, officials announced Monday.

Appointments at the site can start being booked starting at 8 a.m. Wednesday and the site will be open 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.

“We’ll continue expanding our distribution network and vaccinating more New Yorkers as the state receives more supply, and those efforts will help us ensure the state moves through this challenging time together,” Gov. Andrew Cuomo said.

The three sites will be at the Stony Brook University campus in Southampton, SUNY College at Old Westbury, and the Suffolk County Community College campus in Brentwood. State-run sites previously opened at Jones Beach State Park and Stony Brook University. 

The sites are located at:

SUNY Old Westbury, Clark Athletic Center, 223 Store Hill Rd, Old Westbury, NY 11568

Suffolk County Community College – Grant Campus, Crooked Hill Rd, Brentwood, NY 11717

Stony Brook University – Southampton Campus, 70 Tuckahoe Rd, Southampton, NY 11968

Eligible New Yorkers will be able to schedule appointments by utilizing New York’s ‘Am I Eligible’ website or by calling the state’s COVID-19 Vaccination Hotline at 1-833-NYS-4-VAX (1-833-697-4829).

The state has so far opened eligibility for residents who fall in groups 1a and 1b, which includes teachers, first responders, public transit workers, public-facing grocery store workers, people in homeless shelters, anyone older than age 60, and people with certain comorbidities. The state has not yet announced when the general public will become eligible.
