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.

If you have health insurance, the Health Department will bill your insurance. You will not be charged a copay. 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.

Parents and Children

Children between 4 and 16 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Children who are 16 or 17 years must have a signed consent from a parent or guardian or be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

To find immunizations for children younger than 4, call 311 to find a child health clinic near you.

Travel Vaccines

Travel immunizations, including for yellow fever and typhoid, and malaria prophylaxis are not provided at the Fort Greene immunization clinic. You can find travel clinic locations online.

Shingles

There are two shingles vaccines on the market in the United States. Shingrix® is the preferred shingles vaccine and recommended for people 50 years and older. People who cannot receive Shingrix® may use Zostavax®, which is recommended for people 60 and older.

The shingles vaccines are 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. To find locations that offer shingles vaccines, check with your pharmacist or health care provider, or search the NYC Health Map.
