New York has opened up Covid vaccine eligility to New Yorkers age 16 years old and up! Don’t know where to begin and how to start booking your Covid vaccine appointment? Here are tips and advice on where to go and how to book your Covid vaccine appointment in Westchester County.
No Centralized Westchester Covid Vaccine Appointment Website
First you need to know that there is no central website to schedule your Covid vaccine appointment in New York and Westchester County. That means you will have to go to many different websites to find available Covid vaccine appointments in Westchester County. You can make your Covid vaccine appointment directly at the New York state run Covid vaccine registration website or make an appointment directly at one of the Westchester Healthcare Covid vaccine websites or make an appointment directly at one of the Westchester pharmacy websites. With so many vaccine websites to keep track of, booking a Covid vaccine appointment in Westchester County can quickly become overwhelming and frustrating. In this article, you will find a list of links to various Covid vaccine registration websites for Westchester County Covid vaccine locations.
New York State Run Covid Vaccine Sites in Westchester County
There are two New York State run mass Covid vaccination sites in Westchester County. There is a mass Covid vaccine site in Westchester County Center in White Plains and another Covid vaccine site in the New York National Guard Armory in Yonkers. The New York National Guard Armory mass Covid vaccination site is restricted to local Westchester County residents only while the Westchester County Center site is open to all eligible New Yorkers. Here is the link to schedule your Covid vaccine appointment in Westchester County Center and The New York National Guard Armory: New York State-Run Vaccination Registration Site.
New York State Run Covid Vaccine Sites near Westchester County
You will find that it can be challenging getting an appointment at one of the Westchester County Covid vaccination sites. If you can’t get a Covid vaccine appointment in Westchester County, you may want to consider going to other New York state run Covid vaccine sites such as The Javits Center in Manhattan, Aqueduct Racetrack in Queens or Jones Beach in Wantagh. The Covid vaccination site in Aqueduct Racetrack is approximately 50 minutes from Westchester County and the Jones Beach Covid Vaccine site is approximately 55 minutes from Westchester County. Both NY state run Covid vaccine locations have parking so it’s convenient. And of course, there is also parking at the Javits Center Covid vaccination site.
One thing to consider when you are scheduling your Covid vaccine shot is the drive from Westchester County. Most New York state run Covid vaccine sites are administering the Pfizer vaccine. That means you will have to go back again for your second Covid vaccine shot. For the New York state run Covid vaccination sites, you will automatically be scheduled to return for your second shot at the same vaccination location. For example, if your Covid vaccine appointment was at 2pm in Westchester County Center, you will be scheduled to come back for your second Covid vaccine shot at 2pm in Westchester County Center around 3-4 weeks out. If you don’t want to deal with having to go back for your second Covid vaccine shot, you can try to get the one shot Johnson and Johnson Covid vaccine at The Javits Center. But of course, with limited Covid vaccine supplies, you should not be picky, you should book the first Covid vaccine appointment you can find.
Covid Vaccine Bots in New York
Before you start trying to schedule your Covid vaccine, I want to let you in on a secret on how to quickly schedule your Covid vaccination in New York state run mass vaccination sites. Instead of wasting a lot of time refreshing or checking the various Covid Vaccine websites for appointment availabilities only to be greeted with the dreaded “No Appointments Available” message, you should take advantage of the New York Covid vaccine bots.

Basically, these programmers created websites that uses bots to automatically check and recheck the various New York Covid vaccine websites to find out if there are any available appointments. Available Covid vaccine appointments are then posted. This saves you a lot of time and frustration as you book your Covid vaccine.

Turbovax is a website that checks for appointments in the city and state-run vaccine sites in the NYC area which includes the Covid vaccine sites at Westchester County Center and New York National Guard Armory in Yonkers. Turbovax is a free service, created by Huge Ma, a software engineer frustrated with the New York Covid vaccine appointment process. NYC Vaccine List is another free website created by a group of volunteers to check for available Covid vaccine appointments in the government, healthcare and pharmacy websites. Just know that both Turbovax and NYC Vaccine List are more focused on monitoring NYC Covid vaccine websites but it is still a useful resource when trying to get Covid vaccine appointments in Westchester County.
