Where to Get PrEP and PEP in New York City

COVID-19 Update

New Yorkers must stay home and minimize contact with other people to reduce the spread of COVID-19 disease. You should wear a face covering when you need to be outside your home and cannot maintain at least six feet of distance from other people. A face covering is any well-secured paper or cloth (like a bandana or scarf) that covers your nose and mouth. Avoid visiting a clinic or hospital unless you are having a medical emergency. Some providers are offering remote visits via telephone or video conference for routine or non-urgent care.
