Coronavirus (COVID-19): What to Know

COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution

Dear Valued Patient:

At this time, we are vaccinating people age 65 and over who live in the state of New York. If an individual is eligible due to their age, they must produce proof of age and proof of residence in New York. We follow New York state guidelines in determining who can be vaccinated.

New York State also announced that immunosuppressed patients are eligible, but we are waiting for guidance on who qualifies in this group.

We understand that many people are interested in receiving a COVID vaccination and demand is high. Please note that vaccine supplies are limited. Those who are currently eligible can schedule a vaccine appointment through the Connect patient portal as appointments are made available. Please do not call the hospital or your doctor’s office for a vaccine appointment.

We encourage all patients to be sure they are registered on Connect and that their personal information is up to date for the latest news and alerts. For more information about the vaccines, timeframes, and how to use Connect, please visit

For information on other locations in New York where eligible individuals can be vaccinated, please visit or

Thank you for trusting us with your care.
