APPOINTMENTS THROUGH THE STATE VACCINATION SITES
Available For: All people currently eligible
Appointments are being scheduled for vaccinations at NYS Department of Health drive-through testing sites located at 213 Connecticut Road in Plattsburgh, near the airport, or in Potsdam at the SUNY Potsdam Field House, located at 44 Pierrepont Avenue.
Step 1: Determine eligibility and schedule an appointment: Using Am I Eligible? app is the quickest way to see if you're eligible and make an appointment. You can also call the New York State COVID-19 Vaccination Hotline at 1-833-NYS-4-VAX (1-833-697-4829).
Please note, both systems may be overloaded as many residents attempt to schedule appointments at the same time. It may require several attempts to schedule your appointment. Thank you for your patience.
Once you have successfully scheduled an appointment, you will receive a confirmation email that contains a Registration Ticket attachment with a barcode. You will need to bring your Registration Ticket, digitally or in print, to your appointment.
Step 2: Complete the vaccine form: Once you receive your appointment confirmation email, follow the included instructions and click the link to complete the New York State COVID-19 Vaccine Form. Once completed, you will receive an email confirming your completion of this form. You will need to bring this email confirmation to your appointment. If you cannot submit the form online, it will be available at the vaccination sites.
Step 3: Bring proof of eligibility to your appointment. Depending on your eligibility category, proof can include an employee ID card, a letter from an employer or affiliated organization, a pay stub, a driver's license, passport, or any legal proof of your date of birth and residency (more details here).
Individuals eligible for the vaccine based on their qualifying health condition DO NOT need to contact their doctor’s office for a note. You may need to complete a form attesting that you have a qualifying condition
