A limited number of COVID-19 vaccine appointments are available at various Garnet Health facilities. You cannot make appointments by calling your doctor's office, the hospital, or through the New York State website. Vaccination Appointments can only be made through our online scheduling system.
Garnet Health vaccinates all eligible people age 16 years of age and older depending on the vaccine available. Everyone registering for a vaccine must be a NY State resident, employed in NYS or a student in NYS and must provide proof of residency, employment or school attendance at the time of vaccination.
Please review the eligibility guidelines listed below. If you do not have proof of eligibility, you will not be able to receive a COVID-19 vaccine.
Vaccination Guidelines for Eligibility
Garnet Health is vaccinating the following groups per NYS guidelines:
- Individuals age 16 and older
- New York State Residents or
- Employed in New York State
- A student in New York State
If an individual is eligible due to their age (16 years or older), they must produce proof of age and proof of residence in New York. To prove New York residence, an individual must show:
- One of the following: State or government-issued ID; consulate ID (if New York address is displayed); Statement from landlord; Current rent receipt or lease; Mortgage records; or
- Two of the following: Statement from another person; Current mail; School records.
- For age, such proof may include:

If an individual is employed in the State of New York regardless of where they reside, proof of work or employment may include:
- an employee ID card or badge,

If an individual is a student in the State of New York a student ID, report cards, and tuition billing statements are acceptable proof of eligibility.
Minors ages 16 - 17 years old
- Minors need parental or guardian consent to receive a COVID-19 vaccine, except in the rare instance where the minor is part of a group to whom the law gives the right to consent to their own care (e.g., married minors, minors who are parents or pregnant, and minors in the military). Therefore, a consent for vaccination must be signed by you as parent/guardian unless your 16/17 can provide proof that they are able to consent for themselves as documented above.
- Minors must be accompanied by parent or guardian to the appointment. Unaccompanied minors will not be vaccinated.
- Bring proof of age (e.g., birth certificate issued by state or local government, passport, etc.).
If you do not have proof of eligibility, you will not be able to receive the vaccine. Garnet Health will not charge you for the administration of the COVID-19 vaccine. It is provided to you at no cost.
