New Yorkers age 30 and over will be eligible to get the COVID-19 vaccine starting Tuesday — and everyone 16 years and older will be eligible to receive a shot next week, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Monday.

Those age 30 and above can both begin to schedule appointments and get inoculated starting Tuesday, while those 16 and older can start to schedule appointments and get vaccinated beginning April 6.

The move comes after the governor lowered the vaccine eligibility age to 50 last week.

“Today we take a monumental step forward in the fight to beat COVID,” Cuomo said in a statement announcing the new vaccine eligibility criteria.

“As we continue to expand eligibility, New York will double down on making the vaccine accessible for every community to ensure equity, particularly for communities of color who are too often left behind,” Cuomo said.

The Empire State will totally open up coronavirus vaccine eligibility nearly a month before President Biden’s May 1 deadline.

Earlier this month, Biden announced that he will direct all US states to make all adults eligible for the shot by that date – and since then, almost all other states had either opened eligibility to all or set upcoming a date to do so.

To date, more than 9 million vaccine doses have been administered at sites across New York, according to state data.

In the last 24 hours, 171,419 shots have been administered across the state’s distribution network and more than 1.3 million doses have been administered over the past seven days.
