COVID Vaccine Information 9-13-23
An updated monovalent COVID vaccine targeting the Omicron XBB.1.5 variant has been approved for use and is recommended for everyone six months and older to protect against serious illness. At this time, the bivalent COVID vaccines have been discontinued and we are preparing to offer the updated monovalent COVID vaccine at our vaccination clinics.

Please be advised that we will no longer be able to offer COVID vaccine to everyone interested in receiving it at our Health Department clinics. As we shift to our safety net role, COVID vaccines will only be available to children eligible for the Vaccines for Children program and adults who are not insured or are underinsured through the Bridge Access Program at our clinics. COVID vaccine for this population will be available by appointment only by calling (914) 995-5800.

Those with health insurance will be able to receive their COVID vaccine at places where they would normally go to get their vaccines, such as at pharmacies and medical provider offices. Use the Vaccine Finder Tool to schedule a COVID vaccine near you.

The Westchester County Department of Health will be launching a survey to better understand how Long COVID has impacted the health and well-being of community members.

COVID-19 Treatment is Available
Oral antiviral medications are available for treatment of COVID-19 and have been proven to decrease hospitalization for those that are at risk for severe disease. When given soon after a positive diagnosis, these antivirals also help fight infection and shorten recovery time. All treatments require a prescription and those who test COVID-19 positive should talk to their health care provider.

Westchester County residents who test positive and do not have a health care provider, regardless of income or health insurance coverage, are eligible to be evaluated for treatment by calling 888-TREAT-NY (888-873-2869) or completing an evaluation at the NYS COVID-19 ExpressCare Therapeutics Access website, which includes a telemedicine visit. The Hotline is available 24-hours per day, seven days a week and operated by experienced Health + Hospitals professionals who have the clinical training to prescribe treatment and referrals if needed. 

Mpox (Monkeypox) Vaccines are available at our clinics. Appointments are required, call (914) 995-5800.
