Booster Shots

NYC Health + Hospitals is now offering booster shots of the Pfizer vaccine to the following eligible people who previously received two doses of Pfizer vaccine at least six months ago:

  • People 65 or older
  • People 18 to 64 who have either an underlying medical condition or a higher risk of COVID-19 exposure due to their job (for example, health care workers) or where they live or frequently visit (for example, a homeless shelter)
  • People living in a nursing home or other long-term care facility

This shot is intended to help many people boost their immunity from the initial vaccination series, which may have decreased over time.

Booster doses are currently not available for people who received the Moderna or J&J vaccine.

If you are a new patient, you must live or work in one of the five boroughs of New York City and be a member of one of the eligible groups.

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.

If you are 12 years of age or older, please bring proof of your date of birth. For a complete list of documentation you can bring to your appointment as proof of eligibility, visit

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.
