The appointments offer the Pfizer vaccine in the convenience and comfort of their homes at no cost.
“Our efforts to bring the COVID-19 vaccine to the hardest to reach communities take the next step forward today with the expansion of at-home vaccinations for all New Yorkers,” said Dr. Ted Long, Executive Director of the NYC Test & Trace Corps and Senior Vice President for Ambulatory Care and Population Health at NYC Health + Hospitals. “With this service, we can now bring the Pfizer vaccine literally to your doorstep seven days a week.”
Starting today, New Yorkers may register for appointments to receive the COVID-19 vaccine at home. The vaccine is administered by teams of two trained professionals who can accommodate language needs. Children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult to receive the vaccine.
Appointments for at-home vaccinations are available seven days per week, from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. New Yorkers may register for an appointment by visiting nyc.gov/homevaccine or calling 877-829-4692.
At-home vaccinations for all New Yorkers expand on a program launched by the Test & Trace Corps in May to reach those most in need including seniors, NYCHA residents and City employees.
NYC Health + Hospitals is the largest public health care system in the nation serving more than a million New Yorkers annually in more than 70 patient care locations across the city’s five boroughs.
A robust network of outpatient, neighborhood-based primary and specialty care centers anchors care coordination with the system’s trauma centers, nursing homes, post-acute care centers, home care agency, and MetroPlus health plan—all supported by 11 essential hospitals.
Its diverse workforce of more than 42,000 employees is uniquely focused on empowering New Yorkers, without exception, to live the healthiest life possible.
