The COVID-19 Vaccine is Here!

January 11, 2021

You can stop the spread of COVID-19 and save lives! If you’re eligible, schedule your COVID-19 vaccine appointment today. As of January 12, 2021, people 65 and older are eligible to get vaccinated, as are most health care workers, public employees, homeless shelter residents and workers, and frontline grocery store workers. Check if you are eligible here and if you are, schedule an appointment.

We are working hard to vaccinate all eligible individuals. Appointments are available at our Harlem, Walton (Bronx), Stevenson (Bronx), Kingston, New Paltz, Ellenville and Hyde Park locations. You do not need to be a current Institute patient to schedule an appointment for COVID-19 vaccine. We will continue to follow guidelines from New York State and New York City government about who should receive vaccine next. Eventually, everyone will able to get vaccinated. Visit for updates.

If you are not yet eligible, please hold off on calling to schedule your COVID-19 vaccine at this time. Instead, current patients should sign up for MyChart to be notified when the COVID-19 vaccine is available to them.

The COVID-19 vaccine is safe and effective! For more information about the COVID-19 vaccine, view our “questions and answers.” Or, talk to your provider about any questions or concerns you may have about the COVID-19 vaccine.
