The second dose of the vaccine will be made available beginning November 30. Children seeking the vaccine must be accompanied by an adult and be able to produce consent from a guardian.

Children who have not yet been vaccinated will also be able to receive their first shots at that time, according to The Gothamist.

Mayor Bill de Blasio told reporters at a briefing that 26,300 first doses were administered at public schools so far; a total 72,000 children out of some 660,000 have been inoculated at city sites.
