Vaccinations

The NYC Vaccine Finder site tells you everywhere in NYC that vaccinations are available, the type of vaccination offered, and whether the first dose is offered  vaccinefinder.nyc.gov.

Check your eligibility at covid19vaccine.health.ny.gov

Javits Center often has vaccination appointments available, and offers Pfizer, Moderna & Johnson & Johnson. Neighborhood CVS, Walgreens, and RiteAid Pharmacies are also administering vaccinations.

Prevent the spread of COVID-19

IMPORTANT: There is still no cure for COVID-19, and the distribution of vaccines will take months. NYC is also a tourist destination.

  • wear face coverings when in public
  • maintain distance (6' between people in different households)
  • keep hands clean
  • stay home if sick

When rates of infection are high, limit non-essential activities, travel and indoor gatherings with people who are not in your household.

More than 50 volunteers signed up for the Keep Murray Hill Clean campaign

More than 50 volunteers signed up for the Keep Murray Hill Clean campaign

Intrepid Murray Hill residents braved the cold and rain to take part in the December kick-off event for the Keep Murray Hill Clean campaign. They heard from Councilmember Keith Powers and Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer, as well as from speakers from ACE, who talked about additional cleanup they will be doing on the busier commercial avenues. The ACE program provides work for homeless individuals, and their work in Murray Hill is being funded by the City. A big thank-you to the volunteers who signed up to Adopt-a-Block and to those who helped make the kickoff event a success! 

Keep Murray Hill Clean volunteers can take care of their adopted block on their own schedule and can also join in a clean-up event every third Saturday of the month. We are also seeking volunteers who can help with organizing the cleaning events. 

If you would like to adopt a block, please join our Facebook Group at facebook.com/groups/KeepMurrayHillClean or email us at greenandclean@murrayhillnyc.org. Donations are welcome at murrayhillnyc.org/donate. The Keep Murray Hill Clean campaign is a program of The Murray Hill Neighborhood Association Green & Clean Committee. MHNA trustees Stein Berre & Michael-Ann Rowe co-chair the committee, and Michael-Ann is organizing the Keep Murray Hill Clean initiative.
