  • Walk-ins available at select locations

Updated Booster Now Available

A new, updated COVID-19 vaccine booster has been authorized for everyone 12 and older who completed their COVID-19 primary vaccine series or received a booster shot at least two months ago.

This booster is specifically designed to protect you against the Omicron subvariants that account for nearly all recent infections in NYC.

Vaccinate Your Child

NYC Health + Hospitals offers the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine to our patients ages 6 months to 17 years. The best way to protect your child at school, around friends and at home is to get them vaccinated as soon as you can. Vaccinations are safe, effective and available in the pediatric practices of any of our hospitals.

  • Children ages 6 months to 4 years should receive three doses of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine. The first and second doses are separated by three weeks, and the second and third doses are separated by eight weeks.
  • Children ages 5 to 17 should receive two doses of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine, given three weeks apart.

If your child is 6 months to 4 years old and a NYC Health + Hospitals patient, please call your child’s pediatrician to schedule. If your child is not a NYC Health + Hospitals patient, use the City’s Vaccine Finder or call 877-VAX-4NYC (877-829-4692) to schedule an appointment at certain sites, as well as to get other vaccination assistance.

If your child is 5 to 17, you can schedule an appointment for your child’s vaccine here. You can contact one of our hospitals if you have questions about pediatric vaccine availability.

Limited walk-ins will be accepted

Booster Shots

The updated COVID-19 vaccine boosters are recommended for everyone 12 and older. They are called “bivalent” booster vaccines because half of the dose is specifically targeting the Omicron subvariants that account for nearly all recent infections in NYC.

These shots increase your immunity from your initial vaccination series and booster shot.

You can get your updated bivalent booster if it has been at least two months since your most recent COVID-19 vaccine dose.

Boosters for Children

Children ages 5 through 11 years who received Pfizer primary series should receive a booster dose.

Children ages 6 to 11 years who received the Moderna primary series, as well as children younger than 5 years, cannot get a booster at this time.

Before Your Appointment

You must reside in the United States to receive the vaccine.

You will need to complete the New York State COVID-19 Vaccine Form in order to get vaccinated. The State requires the provider administering the vaccine to check that you completed the form.

Before you visit us for your vaccination, also keep in mind these tips:

Bring proof of eligibility – If you are 12 years of age or older, please bring proof of your date of birth.

Reschedule if you are sick – You will be unable to receive the vaccine if you have active COVID-19 or a COVID-19 test result pending. You should also reschedule if you are not feeling well on the day of your appointment.

Bring your health insurance card – COVID-19 vaccines are free with no out of pocket costs to all New Yorkers regardless of insurance status. But if you have health insurance, we will bill your insurance.

Stay protected – Wear a face covering to your appointment and follow social distance guidelines.
