I also managed to snag one by constantly refreshing the vax4nyc page until I found a nearby appointment. New appointments seemingly appear every 15 minutes, with larger batches on the hour. PITA, but worth monitoring.

I just wish there were a way to trade your appointment with someone else to get closer to home. Many appointments that pop up are in the Bronx or Staten Island, and I assume some folks from those boroughs found their appointment in Queens.

As of 8:00AM this morning, all New Yorkers 30 years of age are eligible to receive the vaccine. By April 6th vaccination will be available to all New Yorkers 16 years and older.

This came much sooner than I expected as those 50 and older only became eligible last week. Did all the people over 50 that wanted the vaccine already manage to schedule appointments?

I fall in the group that became eligible today and through persistence and dumb luck I managed to schedule an appointment tomorrow through https://vaccinefinder.nyc.gov/ I was also checking the State's website for availability at Javits Center and Aqueduct Racetrack. https://am-i-eligible.covid19vaccine.health.ny.gov/ On both sites the appointments would appear and disappear as soon as I clicked on them. Extremely frustrating.

A friend told me that her brother had luck today calling (877) 829-4692 which I think is NYC Health and Hospitals.

You may also call 311 to try to get an appointment.
