New York Physicians is committed to your health and to the health of our community as a whole. We encourage every one of you to get vaccinated as soon as you are able. All of the doctors at New York Physicians have gotten the vaccine themselves, support the vaccine and encourage you to get it. Currently, there are many groups approved for vaccination. Please get yours as soon as you are able. See the bottom of this page for those currently eligible and the NYC website where you can sign up to receive the vaccine. Both the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines require 2 doses to build strong immunity.  The second dose is typically 3-4 weeks after the first. 

New York Physicians has been approved by the New York City Department of Health to receive vaccines for our patients.  At this time, we do NOT know when the supply becomes available for delivery to us. I will post here with how to schedule as soon as we know when we are getting our supply! We will be vaccinating patients in adherence to national, state and city guidelines for ensuring equitable access to the vaccine. 

Starting Monday, January 11th all those working in the health care field, whether in clinical roles, administrative roles or facility maintenance, are eligible to receive the vaccine. In addition, "Phase 1b" groups are now eligible: People aged 65 and up, first responders including fire, police and public safety workers, court officers and court support staff, corrections officers and corrections support staff, P-12 schools including teachers and all support staff, licensed child care providers and support staff, all public transit employees, those living or working in homeless shelters, grocery workers, in person college instructors. 

Please schedule a time to get your vaccine! Protect yourself, your loved ones and your community at the earliest possible date!
