COVID Vaccine Information 10-18-23
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. We are now offering the updated monovalent COVID vaccine at our Health Department vaccination clinics.

Please be advised that we are no longer able to provide COVID vaccine to everyone interested in receiving it at our clinics. As a safety net provider, COVID vaccines are now only 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. If you meet this criteria, you can make an appointment at one of our vaccine clinics by calling (914) 995-5800.

If you have health insurance, you are able to get the updated COVID vaccine at places where you would normally go to get vaccines, such as at pharmacies and medical provider offices. Use the Vaccine Finder Tool to schedule a COVID vaccine near you.
