A chunk of this seems like it's required by the state; and some of this would be required for any eligibility program. That said, the DOH's contractor (Affiliated Physicians) requires you to punch a generic usr/psword just to make an account. Why? — hca-nys.org/wp-content/upl…
The H&H website seems better. Let's take a brief look at how that seems to work. I guess the Comptroller's office is calling each question a step, which... Some of this you have to do every time you go to a doc's office, so. ImageImageImage
Now, it says no appointments available. So then it brings up a screen to look for other testing locations(?), which then brings up places to get a swab — which,,,
- H&H
- DOH vaccine hub
- DOH clinic?!
Here's the login screen for the 'pop-up' vaccine clinics, which you have to use a dummy login for (why?!), which are different from the vaccine hubs?! Image
And for the vaccine 'hubs', DOH has a third website. It prompts you to make an account. But if you enter the information and say create account, it then returns you to the home page without any message. Maybe there's a registration email that comes? Who knows! ImageImage
I guess this shouldn't be surprising. Ten months into this crisis, DOH and H&H still haven't put all of their testing locations on one webpage with an easily searchable page. (Again, why not?)

But man.
Nor does either list of testing sites integrate wait times or an address lookup function.

Mayor Bill de Blasio is beginning his day on Morning Joe to talk about President Trump, it sounds like, per the intro.
"City of New York is severing all contracts with the Trump Organization," says de Blasio, citing a clause on 'criminal activity.'

Says Trump siccing a mob on Capitol Hill qualifies.
Re: Ferry Point, in The Bronx, Blas also cites the PGA decision to yank its business from Trump, too.

The municipal political news equivalent of a nuclear bomb drop — ny1.com/nyc/all-boroug…
Great scoop by @Jill_Jorgensen
This caught by eye. As Mayor de Blasio campaigned for president (remember?), his panel commissioned to rethink G&T recommended with doing away the whole shebang, further outraging a lot of the parent groups already outraged by proposals to scrap the SHSAT.

Mayor de Blasio is up on Inside City Hall for his weekly appearance.
Topic A: The expansion of the vaccination program to cover Group 1B, which is basically all front line employees and anyone 75 or older.

Hizzoner talks it up as a 'hopeful day' for the city.

The rollout was rather rocky: nypost.com/2021/01/11/nyc…
Errol: Why can't/won't you order city employees to take the jabs
Blas: Voluntary is better.

"You get a couple of more months into this thing," the uptake will improve he says.
