COVID-19 VACCINE

At this time we do not have COVID-19 vaccine appointments available with the exception of select pediatric sites.  Call your pediatrician’s office for more information.
We are currently not administering 3rd doses/Boosters of the COVID-19 vaccine
.

Effective November 2, the CDC expanded the list of people eligible to those 5 years of age and older. To find out if you are eligible, visit the New York State Vaccination website.

We encourage everyone eligible to get vaccinated. COVID-19 can cause severe medical complications and lead to death in some people. Getting a vaccine is a major step in protecting you from getting COVID-19 or keep you from becoming seriously ill if you do get the virus. Our goal is to vaccinate as many people as quickly as possible in accordance with the Department of Health’s prioritization.

Important Information Regarding 3rd Vaccine Dose
The President’s public health and medical experts recently announced that a third dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna mRNA COVID-19 vaccines will be needed to maximize vaccine-induced protection and prolong its durability. We appreciate that many of our patients are anxious to receive a third dose of the vaccine and we want to provide you with the latest information available to help you better understand the eligibility requirements and remain protected.

Who is eligible to receive the third dose of the COVID-19 vaccine?
The FDA has authorized Moderna’s and Pfizer’s Covid booster shots for all U.S. adults (18+).

IMPORTANT: We strongly encourage immunocompromised patients to consult with your physician prior to getting the third dose.

Where can I get the additional dose if I am immunocompromised?
After you have consulted with your doctor and it has been decided that a third dose is appropriate, these vaccinations are currently available at retail pharmacies across Westchester.  For a list of New York State-operated vaccination locations and availability, visit the New York State Department of Health.

Should I get the same mRNA COVID-19 vaccine as before?
Yes. The CDC recommends that people who received either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine use the same vaccine for their third dose. However, if the same vaccine is not available, the other mRNA vaccine is acceptable. 

Can I get the additional dose from White Plains Hospital, White Plains Hospital Physician Associates or Scarsdale Medical Group?
We are not administering third doses of mRNA COVID-19 vaccines at this time. In the interest of time, we recommend that you first consult with your physician and get vaccinated at one of the sites mentioned above to ensure your health and safety.  For a list of New York State-operated vaccination locations and availability, visit the New York State Department of Health.
