Every NYC Resident Now Eligible For In-Home COVID Vaccine, De Blasio Says

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) -- In an effort to make it easier for New Yorkers to get vaccinated, the city is coming to you.

All New York City residents can make an appointment for an at-home COVID shot at their convenience.

"This is really important for folks who are ready, have not yet been vaccinated, but for whom it's been a challenge to get to a vaccination site or they haven't been sure," Mayor Bill de Blasio said Wednesday. "That vaccine, that lifesaving vaccine, is now available right at your doorstep."

Residents can sign up online, where they're prompted to indicate which vaccine they prefer.
