Payment Information—This is not a free clinic:
If you do not have health insurance, you will meet with a financial counselor who will help you with your insurance needs. Patients who do not qualify for insurance will be fee-scaled.
We accept Medicaid with Metroplus, Healthfirst and HIP (the primary care doctor on your plan has to be a doctor in this practice). We accept a variety of private insurances. Feel free to call (718) 918-8850 before coming in to confirm that your insurance would be accepted and to find out if you have a co-payment.
Most routine vaccines are available for both adults and children, however polio, varicella and meningitis vaccines are only available for children aged 18 and younger.
In order to comply with Medicaid rules, the Health Department’s immunization clinic must request insurance or payment for services given to adults (age 19 and over). If you have health insurance, the Health Department will bill your insurance. You will not be charged a copayment. If you are over 19 years of age and you do not have health insurance or do not want your insurance billed, the Health Department will ask for a sliding scale fee based on family size and annual income. Clinic staff will not ask for proof of family size and income, and services will be provided regardless of ability to pay.
Adults who are currently enrolled in a post-secondary educational program and who receive the MMR vaccine as part of school requirements do not have to pay a fee. See links below for more details.
Travel immunizations, including yellow fever and typhoid vaccines, and malaria prophylaxis are not provided at the Fort Greene immunization clinic. For travel clinic locations, go to the Centers for Disease Control web site at Travelers' Health.
Zostavax® is a vaccine to prevent shingles and is recommended for people 60 years of age and older. This vaccine is not available at the Fort Greene immunization clinic. Pharmacists who are licensed to vaccinate in New York State can administer the shingles vaccine without a prescription from your doctor. Check with your health care provider or with your local pharmacy to see if they provide this vaccine.
Call 311 for more information about clinic services or if you would like to request your child's or your own immunization record (if born and/or vaccinated in New York City after 1995).
