For People Ages 12+: Schedule Your COVID-19 Vaccine Appointment

Note: People who are 12 to 17 years old are only eligible for the Pfizer vaccine.

Your second dose appointment will automatically be scheduled 21 days after your first dose.

Booster Shots

CDC recommended booster shots can help provide continued, long-lasting protection against severe complications, hospitalization and death from COVID-19 for select individuals.

The following people are now eligible for a booster shot of the Pfizer vaccine, if they received two doses of the Pfizer vaccine at least six months ago:

  • People 65 or older.
  • People 18 to 64 and either have an underlying medical condition or a higher risk of COVID-19 exposure due to their job (for example, health care workers) or where they live or frequently visit (for example, a homeless shelter).
  • People living in a nursing home or other long-term care facility.

You will only be able to get a Pfizer booster shot if you received a second Pfizer dose at least six months ago. There are no exceptions to this restriction.

This shot is intended to help many people boost their immunity from the initial vaccination series, which may have decreased over time.

Consent for Minors

For the purposes of COVID-19 vaccine, a minor is defined as an individual under the age of 18 years. Minors need parental or guardian consent to receive a COVID-19 vaccine, except in the rare instance where the minor is part of a group to whom the law gives the right to consent to their own care (e.g., emancipated minors, married minors, minors who are parents or pregnant, and minors in the military). A parent or legal guardian must accompany a minor age under the age of 18 years to provide in-person consent for vaccination at each dose. Vaccine Support Staff must document in the name of the person providing consent for the minor. Verbal consent is allowed.

Delta Variant

The delta variant of the virus is continuing to spread rapidly, and vaccination is the most important tool we have to stop this spread. The delta variant is more contagious, more likely to cause severe illness, more likely to re-infect someone who already had COVID-19 and more likely to infect young people.

Vaccine Side Effects

  • Minor side effects are normal signs that your body is building protection.
  • Common side effects may include pain at the injection site, tiredness, headache, muscle and joint pain or chills and fever.
  • The vaccine does not contain the virus so it cannot give you COVID-19.

You must be eligible to receive vaccine in accordance with the NYSDOH criteria. You must bring proof of age, identification and your insurance card.

Please reschedule if you are not feeling well on the day of your appointment.

Remember to please wear a mask to your appointment. You will not be vaccinated without one.

Host an On-Site Vaccination or COVID-19 Test Clinic:

In collaboration with Parker at Your Door, our mobile vaccination and test program helps organizations — including employers, colleges, universities, secondary schools, and community service organizations get their populations vaccinated through an on-site COVID-19 vaccination clinic.
