New York City has a new Vaccine Referral Bonus Initiative!

Whether you or someone you know is considering getting vaccinated, the Y has been selected as a partner and can earn $100 for each person referred that receives a first vaccine dose at a City-run vaccination site.

For the Y to receive the referral benefit, patients must use the sponsorship field and click on the YM&YWHA of Washington Heights & Inwood from the drop-down menu on the personal information page (page 3), or follow instructions below for walk-ins and at-home visits.

Vaccination Referrals

You or anyone you refer to a City-run vaccination site should select the Y in the referral field on page 3 when making an appointment.

If walking in, one should tell the vaccination site staff handling check in. If getting an at-home visit, the clinician who comes to the home should be informed.
