Sign-On Letter on Vaccine Access and Equity

The NYCLU, members of the COVID-19 New York Working Group, and other interested parties wrote a letter to the NYS Department of Health Commissioner Dr. Zucker, NYC Department of Health & Mental Hygiene Commissioner Dr. Chokshi, and NYC Health + Hospitals President and Chief Executive Officer Dr. Katz to express our deep concern with the way vaccine rollout has proceeded in New York and to urge several commonsense measures that would help ensure that the most vulnerable New Yorkers are able to access vaccines.

Read the Letter

The City and State must do everything in their power to ensure that all of our communities – particularly those who endure increased COVID risk coupled with multiple burdens, including limited English language proficiency, digital illiteracy, and lack of connectivity – are able to easily schedule vaccination appointments and receive vaccines.

As bold as the spirit of New York, we are the NYCLU.
