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.
NYU Langone patients age 6 months and older can schedule their first 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 NYU Langone Health MyChart account 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 first 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.
People age 18 and older may receive the Pfizer–BioNTech, Moderna, or Johnson & Johnson/Janssen vaccines based on our available supply. These vaccines have been proven to be highly effective at preventing severe disease. At their first vaccination appointment, patients will be informed of which vaccine they receive.
Children 6 months to 17 years of age may receive the Pfizer–BioNTech or Moderna vaccines, which are approved for use in this age group.
People age 5 years and older are eligible for a booster beginning 5 months after the date of their second dose. Children age 5 to 11 receive the Pfizer–BioNTech booster, which is approved for this age group. People age 18 and older can choose to receive a Pfizer–BioNTech or Moderna booster.
People age 50 and older are also eligible for a second Pfizer–BioNTech or Moderna booster beginning 4 months after the date of their first booster.
People age 18 and older who received the Johnson & Johnson/Janssen vaccine are eligible for a booster beginning 2 months after the date of their initial dose. Adults who received a primary vaccine and booster dose of the Johnson & Johnson/Janssen vaccine at least 4 months ago are eligibile to receive a second booster, using the Pfizer–BioNTech or Moderna vaccine.
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.
You can choose to schedule an appointment for the same type of vaccine you received in your primary vaccination series, or you have the option to choose a different vaccine as your booster. Each of the three available booster vaccines has been shown to increase antibody levels—an indicator of higher levels of protection against COVID-19 infection—regardless of which vaccine you received in your primary series.
We ask that you first contact your doctor before making a vaccination appointment if any of these categories apply to you:
You should wait at least 10 days after you have received a positive COVID-19 test result or 72 hours after your fever ends to schedule a vaccination appointment. We recommend waiting up to a month after COVID-19 infection, as some experts say that is the time needed to ensure your immune system fully responds to the vaccine. However, unless directed by your doctor, there is no need to wait longer than a month to be vaccinated. If you are quarantining because of exposure to COVID-19, you can schedule an appointment after your quarantine period ends and you have no COVID-19 symptoms.
Please do not schedule a vaccination or come to NYU Langone to be vaccinated if any of the following statements apply to you:
Depending on the vaccine you receive, you may need one or two doses as part of your initial vaccination series. If you require two doses, you can schedule the second vaccination through MyChart after your first vaccination. You will be offered appointments between three and four weeks after your first dose, depending on the vaccine you received.
If you have specific questions about the vaccine related to your health, please contact your NYU Langone doctor.
