Vaccinate the People
Right now, love looks like vaccinations! And we want to do everything we can to make sure that every person in this community gets vaccinated. And when you do get vaccinated, take a photo and tag it #VaccinateThePeople because we want to celebrate with you!
How do I make an appointment to get a Vaccine?
If you’re in New York City:
Volunteers have created a new website that collates available appointments in and around NYC:
- Visit: https://nycvaccinelist.com/
- Consult: https://vaccinefinder.nyc.gov/
- Visit: www.turbovax.info (If you found TurboVax to be helpful, consider making a donation to Welcome to Chinatown)
- Call 877 Vax4NYC
You can also follow @turbavax on Twitter for real-time updates on appointments opening up.
And if you’re not in NYC please consult this list!
Is the Vaccine Safe?
We believe trusting science and professionals is a way to love our neighbors during a time of a pandemic and our Clergy will get the vaccine as soon as we can. If you have questions, please make sure to join our vaccination freedom lab on Thursday, March 11 at 7:00 p.m. with Dr. Meghan Kirksey and Dr. Mary Bassett! You can ask any questions you have in a judgement-free atmosphere, and receive clear answers from medical professionals.
I need help getting to an appointment!
NYC provides free rides for seniors. You arrange this once your appointment is made.
If you aren’t able to arrange a free ride with the city, email Rev. Amanda and Middle has funds to get people to appointments!
Is the Vaccine Free?
Do I need insurance to get the vaccine?
Can I get the Vaccine if I’m undocumented?
All the appointments are taken – what do I do?
Keep calling. Keep refreshing. Appointments tend to open up at midnight. If you want assistance locking in an appointment, email Rev. Amanda Hambrick Ashcraft and we will assign you to a Middle volunteer.
I want to make sure that the most at-risk people – including inmates and those in detention centers are vaccinated as quickly as possible!
Us too! Middle has signed onto city and state wide petitions to demand vaccines for the most vulnerable, but please send us any advocacy efforts we should know about.
I want to help Middle members and other at-risk people get vaccinated.
We love you. We care about you. We know COVID disproportionately affects Black, Brown, Indigenous, elderly and poor people. And we want to be on the frontlines of taking care of each other because that’s what just love looks like.
On Friday, September 17, join Middle member Dr. Meghan Kirksey as she talks about the COVID culture wars, and what we need to do to reprioritize public health over politics. Click the image below to learn more!
