COVID-19 Vaccine

We have vaccination sites throughout New York City and on Long Island.

NYU Langone offers the COVID-19 vaccine to our patients age 6 months and older. To learn more about the COVID-19 vaccine and vaccine safety, read our COVID-19 vaccine information for patients.

COVID-19 Vaccination Appointments

NYU Langone patients age 6 months and older can schedule their COVID-19 vaccination appointments through their NYU Langone Health MyChart account. You can also download the NYU Langone Health app, and log in with your MyChart username and password to quickly and easily schedule your vaccination appointment.

If you are an NYU Langone patient and do not have a MyChart account, create your account now so you can schedule your appointment. If you are a parent scheduling a vaccination appointment for your child, you must have shared access to your child’s health record in MyChart in order to schedule. See our instructions for requesting shared access, also called proxy access.

Vaccination appointments are available at locations across the New York City area. You can choose the location and time that is most convenient for you. You may also call your doctor’s office to schedule a vaccination appointment. Availability is based on our supply of the vaccines.

NYU Langone patients can make an appointment to receive the Pfizer–BioNTech or Moderna vaccines, which are highly effective at preventing severe disease.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that everyone age 6 years and older receive an updated Pfizer–BioNTech or Moderna vaccine regardless of whether they previously received a COVID-19 vaccine. The updated vaccines protect against currently circulating strains of the virus.

Children age 6 months to 5 years may need to receive one or two doses of the vaccine to be up to date with their recommended vaccinations, depending on the number of doses and the original vaccine they received. The CDC provides information on staying up to date on vaccinations.

Important Vaccine Information and Considerations

We ask that you first contact your doctor before making a vaccination appointment if any of these categories apply to you:

  • You had a severe allergic reaction to a vaccine in the past.
  • You have a condition that affects your immune system.
  • You are getting radiation therapy or chemotherapy.

If you recently had COVID-19, we recommend waiting to receive your next vaccine dose by about 3 months from when your symptoms started, or if you had no symptoms, when you first received a positive test. This allows your immune system time to recover and fully respond to the vaccine.

Please do not schedule a vaccination or come to NYU Langone to be vaccinated if any of the following statements apply to you:

  • You are currently feeling sick.
  • You have an active COVID-19 infection.

The CDC provides detailed information about the COVID-19 vaccine. NYU Langone also provides vaccine information for patients.

If you have specific questions about the vaccine related to your health, please contact your NYU Langone doctor.
