CROWN HEIGHTS, BROOKLYN — As the number of people eligible to get the COVID-19 vaccine expands, more Brooklynites are signing themselves and family members up for the shot — and searching for where to get it.

As of Thursday, more than 30 vaccine sites have opened in Brooklyn, a number that will only grow as the city works towards its goal of doubling vaccine sites by the end of the month.

In Crown Heights, two city-sponsored sites have opened so far in the neighborhood. There are also several others nearby, including a "vaccine hub" set up in Bushwick.

Here are the sites in the neighborhood:

  • Statcare - Brooklyn

    • 341 Eastern Parkway, Brooklyn, 11216

    • (855) 936-7362

  • NYC Health Department - Crown Heights Clinic

    • 1218 Prospect Place, Brooklyn, 11213

    • (877) 829-4692

Cuomo announced on Tuesday that New Yorkers over the age of 65 will now be eligible to get the coronavirus vaccine after the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention altered its guidance on vaccine prioritization to recommend inoculating that group.

The expanded criteria will open up vaccinations to at least 1.8 million more New York State residents, Cuomo said.

Immunocompromised individuals are also slated to become eligible to get vaccinated under the new federal guidelines, but state officials are still working with the CDC to determine who qualifies as part of that group, according to Melissa DeRosa, a top aide to the governor.
