The City Council unanimously approved a bill Thursday mandating that the city have a single, unified website for vaccine appointments.
The bill now goes to Mayor Bill de Blasio for his signature.
“The city has finally built a site, which is vax4nyc, which is pretty smooth,” City Councilman Mark Levine, who sponsored the bill, said during an interview Friday on "Mornings on 1." “What we need, is all the providers to put their appointments there.”
“The problems until now has been you have to check dozens of sites, you have to re-register, you have to check for eligibility again and again, you have to sit hitting refresh — it can take hours, it’s confusing,” he said.
Levine said the earlier sign-up process made it difficult for people, especially vulnerable populations, to receive the vaccine.
