We understand that you may be eager to receive the COVID-19 vaccine as soon as possible.
At Whitney Young Health we are planning for the distribution of vaccines, have been approved by the NYS Department of Health to administer the vaccine, and are awaiting our supply.
When we do receive our shipment the supply may be limited, and will be available to patients following the guidelines determined by New York State. Currently vaccines are only available to people in the Priority 1A and 1B groups. To view who is eligible in these groups, click here: https://covid19vaccine.health.ny.gov/phased-distribution-vaccine#phase-1a.
Please do not call Whitney Young Health to make an appointment for a vaccine at this time. We will share information on our website (www.wmyhealth.org) as updated information becomes available.
