New York City is advising health care providers to allow all adults to get the Covid-19 booster shot as the city grapples with a rise in virus cases.

“Although hospitalizations remain low right now, we are seeing an uptick in cases in recent days,” said New York City Health Commissioner Dave Chokshi during a daily virus briefing. “Providers should not turn a patient away if they request a booster.”
