Vaccine Availability for Pace

News Story

Here’s your shot to help keep Pace safe. The health and safety of the Pace Community is our top priority, and getting vaccinated against COVID-19 is a key part. Check back frequently as we announce vaccine availability for our community.

Effective April 6, all adult New Yorkers—that’s everyone 16 or older—is eligible to be vaccinated. (Only the Pfizer vaccine is approved for 16 and older; Moderna and Johnson & Johnson are approved for 18 or older.) This is one step closer to fulfilling our plans for a Fall 2021 semester that feels closer to normal, with fully in-person classes and activities. Some of you have already been vaccinated as you reached eligibility earlier—which is wonderful news!

Getting as many people vaccinated is one of the most effective strategies for us to protect our families, colleagues, peers, and community members. See below for information about how and where to get vaccinated:
