Dear Reader,

You might have heard that we’ve had some luck getting our neighbors signed up for vaccine appointments. What started out as a small word-of-mouth initiative for those in our community (and we use the word community inclusively: We’ve gotten appointments for upstate farmers, restaurant workers in Harlem, taxi drivers in Brooklyn and grandparents in Queens) has grown into something beyond us. We have dozens and dozens of volunteers who are eager to help, and we’ve successfully secured about 500 vaccine appointments — a number that’s growing rapidly.

Do you need help getting a vaccine appointment? Please fill out our intake form.

Need a letter for your employer to verify your eligibility? Check out our folder of documentation.
