Updated COVID-19 Vaccine Recommended for Persons 65 and Older

At NYC Health + Hospitals, we continue to be here for all your COVID-19 needs.

Persons 65 years of age and older should receive an additional dose of the 2023-2024 monovalent COVID-19 vaccine. The additional dose would be administered at least 4 months following the previous dose of updated COVID-19 vaccine. For appointments, call 1-844-692-4692.


Updated COVID-19 vaccines from the 2023-2024 season are recommended for everyone 6 months and older. They are designed to protect against newer COVID-19 variants and to increase people’s protection against the virus.

The following groups of people are at increased risk for severe illness or dying from COVID-19:

  • Individuals 65 years of age or older
  • Pregnant women
  • Individuals with an underlying health condition (e.g. diabetes, cancer, chronic lung disease, heart conditions or HIV)
  • Individuals who are immunocompromised
  • Individuals with certain disabilities

Vaccination can help reduce the duration and severity of COVID-19 symptoms if you become infected and it may reduce the risk of developing Long COVID. You can also get your annual flu shot on the same day as your updated COVID vaccine.

To make an appointment, call 1-844-NYC-4NYC (1-844-692-4692)

Vaccinate Your Child

The best way to protect your child at school, around friends and at home is to get them vaccinated as soon as you can. Vaccinations are safe, effective and available in the pediatric practices of any of our hospitals and select Gotham Health Centers.

  • Specific recommendations for COVID vaccinations for children depend on the child’s age and history of prior vaccination.
  • Speak with your child’s pediatrician to understand more.

To Make an Appointment

Call 1-877-VAX-4NYC or 1-877-829-4692

*If your child is 6 months to 4 years old and a NYC Health + Hospitals patient, please call your child’s pediatrician to schedule. If your child is not a NYC Health + Hospitals patient, use the City’s Vaccine Finder or call 877-VAX-4NYC (877-829-4692) to schedule an appointment at certain sites, as well as to get other vaccination assistance.

Before Your Appointment

Before you visit us for your vaccination, also keep in mind these tips:

  • Bring proof of age – A parent or guardian must provide consent for a child to be vaccinated.
  • Reschedule if you are sick – You will be unable to receive the vaccine if you have active COVID-19 or a COVID-19 test result pending. You should also reschedule if you are not feeling well on the day of your appointment.
  • Bring your health insurance card – COVID-19 vaccines are free with no out of pocket costs to all New Yorkers regardless of insurance status. But if you have health insurance, we will bill your insurance.
