Dear Patient,

We are excited to inform you that people living in the United States who are 12 years of age and older are eligible to receive the COVID-19 Vaccine. We, the doctors and health care teams at NewYork-Presbyterian, Columbia Doctors, and Weill Cornell Medicine, are here to support you with information about the vaccine and how best to schedule an appointment to receive the vaccine. All of the COVID-19 Vaccines, authorized for use in the United States, are safe and very effective at keeping you from getting severely sick from COVID-19.

Where can I get vaccinated?

Eligible patients and community members with an appointment can get vaccinated at:

  • Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital (MSCHONY) Wintergarden located at 3959 Broadway on the corner of West 165th Street.
    Hours: Tuesday, Thursday, Friday from 9am to 7pm and Saturday, 3pm to 7pm

How do I make an appointment?

COVID-19 vaccinations are free. Appointments are required. All you need is proof of your age and identity. You do not need a social security number or government ID to get the vaccine.

If you live in Northern Manhattan, Harlem, or the South Bronx and are eligible for the vaccine, you can make an appointment for the MSCHONY Wintergarden by calling (646) 838-0319 or call the Harlem Children’s Zone at (212) 360-3223 to be scheduled at the Harlem Armory.

Columbia patients can self-schedule for the MSCHONY Wintergarden using the Connect online patient portal or call your practice to be scheduled at the MSCHONY Wintergarden or at the Harlem Armory.

If you are a patient at Weill Cornell, you can self-schedule an appointment using the Connect online patient portal or call the practice to be placed on the Belfer schedule.

COVID Testing

Pediatric Updates

 

Vaccination Update

Español

Dear Patient/ Parent(s) or Guardian(s),

As the COVID vaccine becomes available for young adults from the age of 12 and up, we want you to know that you can always count on us. We, the doctors and the health care teams at Columbia and NewYork-Presbyterian, are here to keep you informed on how to prevent COVID-19 most effectively and how to best obtain the vaccine, which we highly recommend.

Who can get the COVID-19 vaccine?

At this time, vaccines are approved for all of those ages 12 and older, and are available at many locations. These vaccines are available without an appointment at all NYS sites and at others by appointment including local pharmacies. For those who are between the ages of 12-17 the only approved vaccine at this time is the Pfizer vaccine, which is part of a 2-dose series separated by three weeks.   

Immigration or insurance status is not a barrier!

Does my provider recommend the vaccine against COVID-19?

Yes! Becoming protected against COVID-19 is important for your health, your family, and your community. The vaccines are safe and have been shown to prevent you from getting severe COVID and from dying of COVID at very high levels of protection.

If you have any questions or concerns, talk to your doctor about why the vaccine is right for you.

What happens when I get the vaccine?

After getting the vaccine, you may feel pain at the injection site, pain in your arm, headache or feeling tired that usually last about one to two days. Some people get fever and body aches.

How do I make an appointment?

You can call the NMIC/NYP Community Hotline at 646-838-0319.  You can also send a message to your doctor in Pediatrics through MYCHART and they will review your chart, discuss with you, and schedule you. We are currently offering the Pfizer vaccine at Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital Wintergarden on Broadway and 165th Street weekdays, Saturday afternoons and some Sundays. Specifically, we are accommodating our young adults with special needs, safely and in a coordinated manner at the Audubon Practice, located at 166th Street and Audubon Avenue, as well as other patients of ours who prefer coming to Audubon. Your doctor will discuss this with you if you have any questions.

If you are having issues with your MYCHART account, please call 646-962-4200.

You can also find other sites at:  COVID19vaccine.health.ny.gov,  www.nyc.gov/vaccinefinder, www.nycvaccinelist.com, vax4nyc.nyc.gov/patient/s/ or Bronx residents may schedule at somosvaccination.mdland.com/p/covid/.

Thank you for your understanding in helping us keep our patients, families, and loved ones protected and healthy during this time.

Sincerely,
Medical Directors – Pediatric & Adolescent Health

Dear parent(s) or guardian(s),

We, the doctors and the health care teams at Columbia and NewYork-Presbyterian, are here to take care of you in a safe way. 

All of our practices are open Monday to Friday by appointment ONLY.  The Audubon Practice continues to be open on Saturdays for flu shots by appointment ONLY.

Español

Will the clinic be a safe place?

Your safety comes first. We want you to know that we have increased our safety measures and that your experience will be more comfortable, modern and efficient than ever before.  Our waiting rooms are designed to allow for social distancing and you will not wait in the waiting room long, if at all.  The practice staff follow CDC guidelines and has the proper personal protective equipment and wear it at all times.  We are sanitizing areas throughout the day and exam rooms are cleaned extensively between all patient visits.

How do you call your Practice if you need an in-person appointment for a physical exam?

Audubon Practice: (212) 342-3200
Broadway Practice: (212) 304-6922
Rangel Practice: (212) 491-2300
Washington Heights Family Health Center: (212) 342-3060

What if I need a school physical form for my child?

If your child has had a physical exam in the last 18 months, their form can be completed without a new visit.  If your child needs a form, PLEASE send a message using MyChart, the patient portal.

What if I need a WIC form for my child?

All WIC offices are closed but they are available by phone at (212) 928-6500.  A blood test before your child’s WIC appointment may still be needed.  Please contact your practice by MyChart to see if we can complete your form with the information, we have from your most recent visit.

If your child or adolescent (any age) is sick, PLEASE CALL YOUR PRACTICE FIRST. We will see them either through a video visit using your phone/tablet or in person.

If your child or adolescent is suffering from increased anxiety or sadness or if you would like to talk to a social worker, please call your Practice.  We are here to help. Counseling is available via video.

If your child has asthma or wheezing, please bring your ALBUTEROL or VENTOLIN pump to all your medical appointments.  Using your own pump is the safest way to treat your child’s asthma.

If you are having issues with your MYCHART account, please call 646-962-4200.
