Who can get the COVID-19 vaccine in Harlem?

Harlem, New York is currently in Phase 1b in the vaccine administration. Read more about eligibility here.

How much will the Covid-19 vaccine cost in Harlem? 

As part of Operation Warp Speed, the U.S. government bought several hundred million doses of the COVID-19 vaccines. 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently announced that individuals will not have to pay for the COVID-19 vaccine.

However, it is possible to be charged for the administration of the vaccine if being vaccinated at a private doctor’s office or pharmacy. We estimate that vaccine administration can cost between $16 and $29 per dose. 

Once the government is no longer purchasing vaccines, people may have to pay between $25 and $58 for a COVID-19 vaccination.
