Getting to COVID-19 vaccine sites on public transit

Updated May 10, 2021
Here are details about where to find COVID-19 vaccine sites in New York and tools to plan your trip.

How and where to get vaccinated

1. Find a nearby vaccination center

The COVID-19 vaccine is now available to all New York residents 16 and older. People who live outside of the state but work or study in New York are also eligible to get vaccinated. People who are eligible based on employment include both paid and unpaid workers.

Vaccines are being distributed by health-care providers, hospital clinics, pharmacies, urgent care centers, and community vaccination sites.

2. Plan your trip

You can check for planned work and service changes and see options for when the subway is closed from 2-4 a.m. We're restoring 24-hour subway service Monday, May 17. 

Use the trip planner on our homepage or in the MYmta apps for iPhones and Android phones.

3. Keep taking safety precautions

  • Wear a mask. (It’s required when you ride with us.)
  • Wash your hands and use hand sanitizer often.
  • Maintain a safe social distance when you can.
  • Stay home if you feel sick.

The vaccines have been shown to protect people from COVID-19. We don’t know if they keep you from spreading the virus to someone else. Keep doing your part to keep New York healthy.

Find a vaccine site

Search for your nearest COVID-19 vaccination site using the city’s COVID-19 Vaccine Finder.

Getting to state vaccination sites

Beginning at 9 p.m. April 25, we'll be discontinuing the B98V and Q98V bus routes, due to extremely low ridership. Other local bus routes and the subway will continue to get Queens and Brooklyn residents to vaccination sites at York College and Medgar Evers College.
