Some New Yorkers have been working on ways to fix the city and state’s confusing vaccine rollout, and new sites are popping up to make it easier to secure an appointment.
The site we highlighted a couple of weeks ago, the Vaccine Appointment Assistance Team (VAAT), is apparently not taking new patients at the moment because so many people came to them for help. “Because of high demand, the service — which now has 20 volunteer caseworkers — has stopped taking new cases for now, and the founders are thinking about partnering with a nonprofit to increase capacity,” the Times reported.
But there are at least two other sites that can help.
NYC Vaccine List compiles appointments from more than 50 vaccination sites, including private and public sites. Appointments go fast, so you have to refresh frequently.
New groups have now gotten access to the vaccine, including restaurant workers. People with certain underlying conditions will soon get access too.
