COVID-19 Vaccine

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

NYU Langone is offering 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 Primary Series Vaccination Appointments

NYU Langone patients age 6 months and older can schedule their primary series of 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, to MyChart.

Please do not call your doctor’s office about scheduling your primary series of vaccination appointments, as our vaccination appointments are made at specialized sites in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens and on Long Island. You can choose the location and time that is most convenient for you.

NYU Langone patients can make an appointment to receive the Pfizer–BioNTech or Moderna vaccines. These vaccines, which are highly effective at preventing severe disease, require two doses as part of your primary vaccination series. You can schedule the second dose through MyChart between three and four weeks after your first dose, depending on the vaccine you received.  

Children 6 months to 17 years of age may receive the Pfizer–BioNTech or Moderna vaccines for their primary vaccination series, which are approved for use in these age groups.

COVID-19 Booster Appointments

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is recommending that people age 5 years and older receive updated Pfizer–BioNTech and Moderna boosters. These new boosters, which are known as bivalent vaccines, protect against both the Omicron variant and the original virus strain.

People age 5 years and older who received the Pfizer vaccine, and people age 6 years and older who received the Moderna vaccine, are eligible for a bivalent booster, if it has been at least two months since they received their primary vaccination series or their most recent booster. The earlier Pfizer–BioNTech and Moderna boosters, known as monovalent vaccines, are no longer available for people in these age groups.

If you are eligible for a booster vaccination, you can schedule your appointment online through your NYU Langone Health MyChart account. Availability is based on our supply of the vaccines, which may be limited.

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—primary or booster—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 Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) provides detailed information about the COVID-19 vaccine, and 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.
