NYC Health + Hospitals knows that children have unique needs and require special care. That’s why our pediatric services encourage routine visits to our primary care medical homes so we get to know your child to build a foundation for their best health. Our emphasis on preventive care helps you and your child take steps to prevent injuries and illness too.
Keeping Your Child Healthy During COVID-19
It is very important that your child is fully up-to-date with their vaccine schedule especially as we emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic. Vaccinations are available at NYC Health + Hospitals sites that are located throughout New York City. COVID-19 vaccines are now also included in the child immunization schedule.
Special attention has been placed on ensuring that these sites are safe and are following recommendations to decrease your exposure to germs during your visit.
