According to the NYC Mayor’s Office website,
You do not need documentation from your personal health care provider or any other proof of your condition to get a vaccine in NYC. It is only necessary for you to self-certify you have an underlying condition that makes you eligible. You will be asked to self-certify as part of the appointment scheduling process, or a vaccine provider will ask you to complete the below certification document before or at the time of your appointment. You may not be required to certify your condition if you are vaccinated by your usual health care provider. You must also bring proof that you live in New York.
