Health Insurance and Billing Practices

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.

Parents and Children

  • Children between four (4) and 16 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Children who are 16 or 17 years old must either have a signed consent from or be accompanied by a parent or guardian. For children younger than four (4) years of age, call 311 to find a Child Health Clinic near you.

Travel Vaccines

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.

Shingles

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).
