If you are an NYU Langone patient and do not have a MyChart account, create your account now so you can schedule your appointment.

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.

NYU Langone offers the Pfizer–BioNTech, Moderna, and 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, all patients will be informed of which vaccine they receive. Patients ages 12 to 17 receive the Pfizer–BioNTech vaccine, also known by the brand name Comirnaty, which currently is the only vaccine approved for this age group.

COVID-19 Booster Vaccination Appointments at NYU Langone

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved an additional dose of the COVID-19 vaccines for people age 65 and older, as well as for adults at higher risk of severe COVID-19 or high risk of exposure to COVID-19. People in these groups are eligible for the additional dose, referred to as a booster, according to the following timelines: 

  • People who received the Pfizer–BioNTech or Moderna vaccines may receive a booster beginning six months after the date of their second dose. 
  • People who received the Johnson & Johnson/Janssen vaccine may receive a booster beginning two months after the date of their initial dose. 

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. 

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, regardless of which vaccine you received in your primary series.  

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.
  • You are taking medications that affect your immune system or have taken corticosteroids for more than 14 days.

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, 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:

  • You are currently feeling sick.
  • You have an active COVID-19 infection. 
  • You received a COVID-19 diagnosis and were treated with COVID-19 monoclonal antibody infusions or convalescent plasma within the past 90 days.

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. 

Understanding the COVID-19 Vaccine

The 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.
