Proof of Eligibility (Source https://www1.nyc.gov/site/doh/covid/covid-19-vaccines.page)
“New Yorkers must bring proof of age and New York residency. Some sites may only vaccinate people from a certain borough or ZIP code.
Minors must have identification to verify they are at least 16 years of age, or they must have a parent or legal guardian present to attest on their behalf. A parent or legal guardian must also provide consent for vaccination — either in person or by phone — at the time of the vaccine appointment. People who live outside of New York must bring proof of age and that they work or study in New York. You will not need to provide proof of immigration status or a social security number to get vaccinated.”
Note regarding pain medication
If you regularly take aspirin, acetaminophen (e.g., Tylenol), or ibuprofen (e.g., Motrin, Advil) for other medical conditions, continue to do so as directed by your physician or as needed. Otherwise, do not take these medications before getting vaccinated. Taking over-the-counter medications like these before receiving a vaccine may decrease your immune response to the vaccine, making it less effective. After the vaccination, you can take an over-the-counter medication as needed to address side effects from the vaccine.
