If New Yorkers have a pre-existing condition and qualify for the COVID-19 vaccine- there’s a form that’s required before receiving it.
The recipient must ‘attest’ to the fact that they, in fact, have a pre-existing condition that qualifies.
The form reads “I hereby certify under penalty of law that I belong to one of the below priority groups eligible for vaccination.”
In the Finger Lakes- vaccine leaders aren’t asking for extensive proof- but it’s still a misdemeanor if you lie about an attestation, according to a recent Good Question segment by News10NBC.
The state Department of Health did not get back to them with comment on the number of violations to date.
