NEW YORK STATE UPDATES

New York State vaccine eligibility has been extended to individuals with comorbidities and underlying conditions. This is in addition to those 65 and older, teachers and education workers, first responders, public safety and transit workers, and those who are pregnant.

Governor Cuomo announced New York State is launching a new pilot program to begin administering the Johnson & Johnson single-dose vaccine to eligible New Yorkers during the overnight hours at Yankee Stadium, Javits Center, and New York State Fair Mass Vaccination Sites.

New York State/New York City Yankee Stadium Site to Begin Administering Johnson & Johnson Vaccine on Thursday, March 4 Between 8 p.m. and 7 a.m.; Appointments Go Live at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, March 3. Eligible Bronx Residents seeking appointments should visit Somosvaccinations.com or call 1-833-SomosNY.

Javits Center Site to Begin Administering Johnson & Johnson Vaccine on Friday, March 5 Between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m.; Appointments Go Live at 8 a.m. on Thursday, March 4.

State Fair Site to Begin Administering Johnson & Johnson Vaccine on Friday, March 5 Between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m.; Appointments Go Live at 8 a.m. on Thursday, March 4.

Eligible New Yorkers seeking appointments should visit New York’s ‘Am I Eligible’ website or call the state’s COVID-19 Vaccination Hotline at 1-833-NYS-4-VAX (1-833-697-4829).

If you are a resident of Brooklyn and Queens, you can look to book an appointment here.

Sollis is required to follow state guidelines at risk of losing access. We must follow the strict protocols provided by the state at the risk of losing access to future vaccinations.

As far as we understand, at this time, the New York general policy will be to allocate to hospitals, pharmacies and mass vaccination centers (ex. Javits Center, Yankee Stadium) rather than to small clinics.

If you are eligible, you may prefer to look for a vaccine outside of Sollis. New York is preferentially distributing vaccines for people over the age of 65 through retail pharmacies and vaccine clinics run by the Department of Health or the City. Those eligible can seek appointments on Vaccine Finder, which allows you to search by zip code and by vaccine, NYC Lookup or NYS Lookup.

CALIFORNIA STATE UPDATES

Sollis Health is currently not able to provide vaccinations in California.

The state has announced that it is changing its vaccine rollout strategy in California after completion of Phase 1B, Tier 1 (Education and Childcare, Emergency Services, Food and Agriculture). The state plans to transition to age-based eligibility, allowing California to scale up and down quickly, while ensuring vaccine goes to disproportionately impacted communities.

This website from the California Department of Public Health, still in pilot phase, allows Los Angeles and San Diego residents to be notified when it’s their turn to get vaccinated. Appointments are available here.

We recommend visiting California’s Covid-19 website to learn more about local eligibility information and additional vaccination sites.

FLORIDA STATE UPDATES

Sollis Health is currently not able to provide vaccinations in Florida. The State of Florida is vaccinating individuals 65 and over. If you are in Florida, for the moment, we suggest visiting Florida’s Covid-19 website to learn more about local eligibility information and vaccination sites. This site also provides information regarding vaccinations in the Miami area.

SOLLIS HEALTH UPDATES

Please know that Sollis has ordered a vaccine for every member, but distribution remains at the discretion of each state. (This includes both doses.) We do not have control over vaccine shipments. We are doing everything to get more vaccines as quickly as possible, including speaking regularly with local and state-level governments. We advise you to continue monitoring State websites for vaccination appointments.

COVID-19 VACCINE SCREENING SURVEY

To help Sollis prepare for future vaccine allocations, please fill out the Covid-19 Vaccine Screening Survey that was distributed to our members’ inboxes on January 12. Completing the survey will neither put you on a waitlist nor guarantee vaccination. It will help us categorize our member base into distribution groups so we can be as organized as possible when eligibility for the vaccine widens and when we receive additional vaccine supply.
