VACCINES FOR THE HOMEBOUND POPULATION We have been following the vaccination efforts of the City very closely and offered to help in any way we can to ensure that all eligible Staten Islanders who wish to be vaccinated have that opportunity. Some time ago, we identified the homebound population as one that was slow to be vaccinated. Good news! We understand from our partners in City government that the Homebound Vaccination program is not only up and running, but can absolutely handle the capacity of homebound Staten Islanders who wish to be vaccinated. So even if you or a loved one had signed up previously, please reach back out to be sure you are screened and given an appointment. Please call 877-829-4692 or visit NYC.gov/homebound to be included and fill out the form at https://forms.cityofnewyork.us/f/homebound
