The Federal Government determines how much vaccine New York State receives, affecting the County’s supply. Nassau County has used 100% of the doses allocated to us and will continue to use every dose as additional supply comes in.  

In addition to vaccination centers run by the County’s Department of Health, listed below, vaccines are available at New York State sites which can be accessed through the “Am I Eligible" app.  

An appointment is required to be vaccinated at any Department of Health or NYS vaccination center.
