New York City is committed to ensuring that access to the vaccine is fair and equitable.
Some people who have received both doses of the Pfizer vaccine are now eligible for a booster shot. To receive a booster shot, you must be one of the following:
You can only get a booster shot if you received your second dose of the Pfizer vaccine at least six months ago. There are no exceptions to this restriction.
It is recommended that people who have received two doses of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine receive a third dose as part of their initial vaccine series if they are moderately to severely immunocompromised (meaning they have a weakened immune system). These people should get their third dose at least 28 days after their second shot.
Before you get your vaccination, be sure to follow these requirements:
You must bring proof of age to your vaccination.
You will not need to provide proof of immigration status or a social security number to get vaccinated. ID is only required for proof of age.
When you receive the vaccine, your privacy will be protected. There are strict laws in place to ensure confidentiality of your personal information.
Proof you are 12 or older may include:
A parent or guardian must provide consent for their child to be vaccinated in person or by phone. They will not need to provide proof they are the child's parent or guardian.
Some providers, including all City-run sites, will accept proof of consent in writing. However, in-person or phone consent is preferred.
All minors who are 12 to 15 must be accompanied to the vaccination site by a parent or guardian, or another adult caregiver designated by the parent/guardian.
The child must also have a completed New York State COVID-19 Vaccine Form.
