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, including boosters. Visit NYC Vaccine Finder or call 877-VAX-4NYC (877-829-4692) to schedule an appointment.

At-home vaccinations are available to New Yorkers ages 65 and older or who are homebound. Schedule an at-home vaccination or call 877-VAX-4NYC (877-829-4692).


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.
