We’re racing against the clock to get vaccines to the people who are most vulnerable — and to provide funding and resources to help lift New Yorkers out of this pandemic.

And the needs continue...

New variants are showing up in New York. It’s often difficult for Holocaust survivors and the elderly to make vaccine appointments or leave their neighborhoods to get a vaccine. Appointment forms aren’t easily accessible in every community. And people are still getting sick with Covid.

So we’ve been fighting for access and eligibility. We advocated for our local nonprofit partner agencies to become approved vaccination sites, enhancing access for the elderly and other less mobile New Yorkers who can’t travel to mass sites. We’ve pushed for broader access to information, which has resulted in key forms getting translated into Yiddish and Russian for the Haredi community and Jewish Russian-speakers. We pressed and secured expanded eligibility for more frontline workers. And we’ve helped secure access to medical treatments for people with Covid, like monoclonal antibodies.We’re working to help keep all New Yorkers safe.
