New York has now expanded the ability of more eligible union members and retirees to get scheduled to receive the COVID-19 vaccination, many of whom may qualify because of their age or where they work.
Who is eligible:
The initial groups of Phase 1b now eligible for COVID-19 vaccine include: Individuals 65 and older; first responders; corrections officers; teachers and other school staff; in-person college instructors; childcare workers; public-facing grocery store workers; transit workers; and individuals living and working in homeless shelters. For a more complete listing, visit our Coronavirus Information Page.
How to schedule your appointment:
Eligible CSEA members in those categories who wish to get vaccinated are urged to schedule an appointment to get vaccinated as soon as possible. Appointments are required. You can check your eligibility and find your nearest vaccination location by visiting the state’s website. You can also now call the New York State Vaccination Hotline at 833-NYS-4VAX (833-697-4829). You may also wish to call your local pharmacy or county Health Department to schedule your appointment.
Where will vaccinations occur?
Vaccinations will occur at multiple locations such as local pharmacies, doctor’s offices, health departments, and mass distribution sites throughout the state, with more locations becoming available in the very near future. Due to supply and demand, there may be an extended wait for people to actually get vaccinated, but we urge everyone interested to make an appointment now

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact workers throughout New York, and CSEA has created an informational page to share accurate information regarding the many labor relations issues that have arisen from workplace closures and implementation of safety protocols.
The staff professionals in our union’s Occupational Safety & Health Department have been closely monitoring the situation and providing appropriate guidance to union members. This includes a series of available on-demand webinars, and a section of Frequently Asked Questions.
With so much uncertainty around keeping our schools as safe as possible for school workers, children, and the entire school community, CSEA has created our Safe@School Initiative, which is designed to be a one-stop-shop of resources regarding school safety during the pandemic.
If you are a school worker, please take advantage of the information on this page to help make sure your school community is protected to the greatest extent possible.
Essential workers: Are you in need of alternate childcare?
