Today, Representative Adriano Espaillat released the following statement urging eligible constituents to sign up to get the COVID-19 vaccine.
Launched this week, the Northern Manhattan, Harlem, and South Bronx Community COVID-19 Vaccination Scheduling Hotline is now open for appointments at the Washington Heights Armory for individuals who live in eligible zip codes and are age 65 and over.
“This week, our nation marked yet another heartbreaking milestone with more than 500,000 lives lost to the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Congressman Espaillat. “We embrace all who have lost loved ones during these challenging times and must remain vigilant in our efforts to combat this virus for good. I commend the NewYork-Presbyterian and its network of frontline medical professionals, community leaders, and volunteers who are assisting with appointments, and I urge all eligible residents in my district to get vaccinated and call the hotline as soon as possible to schedule appointments.”
The hotline, which is fully bilingual in English and Spanish, can be reached by dialing 646-838-0319 Monday through Friday 9:00 a.m. to 4:45 p.m.
Depending on call volumes, individuals may not reach someone immediately, but please call back if you are not successful in reaching a hotline specialist. Please also note that appointment availability is dependent on vaccine availability.
