Healthy Aging

COVID-19 Information for Older New Yorkers

Adults over 50, and especially over 65, are at increased risk of severe complications and death from COVID-19. Make sure you are up to date on vaccinations. Visit NYC Vaccine Finder to find a location near you.

Every New Yorker deserves a healthy aging experience. For older adults, healthy aging includes being able to meet basic needs, to learn, to be mobile, to build and maintain relationships, and to contribute to society. For most people, this means being able to remain independent and choose where and how they age.
