#ItsYourTurn: All in-person SUNY faculty and staff are eligible for the vaccine

All SUNY employees represented by the Civil Service Employees Association (CSEA), the New York State Public Employees Federation (PEF) and United University Professions (UUP) are now eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine.

Update: As of March 30, 2021, all New Yorkers over the age of 30 are eligible to make their vaccination appointment. New Yorkers 16 and up become eligible on April 6, 2021. More information here.

SUNY has launched a new #ItsYourTurn awareness campaign with public service announcements and direct email outreach outlining the benefits of the FDA-approved Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines, and providing instructions for where and how to make an appointment.

You may visit covid19vaccine.health.ny.gov at your earliest convenience to learn more and make an appointment. If you still have questions about the vaccines, check out SUNY’s #KnowYourVax video series featuring experts from across the state university system.

“Over the last year, our devoted faculty and staff at every level have made significant sacrifices to keep our campuses safe and our students learning,” said SUNY Chancellor Jim Malatras. “From building staff who worked extra hours to keep our academic buildings sanitized to faculty members who helped us relaunch in-person learning—these are without question SUNY’s unsung heroes. Now that it’s their turn to receive a COVID vaccine, it’s up to us to provide all the facts, direction, and assistance possible to protect them from this vicious virus and eventually restore normalcy on our campuses. I want to thank the leaders at CSEA, PEF, and UUP for partnering with SUNY on this campaign and for continuing to work collaboratively with us to keep campuses safe.”
