Vaccine Appointments for
Patients 12 Years Old & Over
To our patients,

The FDA has now approved the administration of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for 12 to 15 year olds. Formal recommendation from the CDC is expected to come soon as well.

We are pleased to announce that beginning on Monday, May 17th, patients age 12 years old and above who reside in the United States, can start to schedule their Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine appointments at our Belfer Research Building, by logging into their Connect account.

If you do not have access to Connect, you may call our access center at (646) 962-2000 to schedule your COVID-19 vaccination appointment.

You will also need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian to your appointment in order to receive the vaccine.

Don't delay your care. By getting vaccinated, you are helping to protect yourself and your loved ones by preventing the spread of the COVID-19.

“Our best hope for getting this pandemic under control and protecting ourselves and our loved ones is to get vaccinated. The Pfizer vaccine offers outstanding safety and effectiveness in preventing hospitalization and death, equivalent to the best childhood vaccines available. There is no reason to delay getting vaccinated, and every reason to do it as quickly as possible.”

I got vaccinated for myself, my loved ones, my patients, and my community. I got vaccinated so I can hug my 86 year old Mom again! She is my hero!”

"When you vaccinate your child, you not only protect them, but you help protect all of the people around them as well, including kids and adults with cancer or rare immune disorders who may be more vulnerable."
