VIP Community Services is now offering the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) vaccine to eligible patients, based on guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the New York State Department of Health.
Based on these guidelines and instructions from New York state, we are approved to start vaccinating patients who are 65 and older, and certain essential workers. As the state guidelines expand—and as the supply of the vaccine delivered to VIP increases—we will offer the vaccine to additional eligible patients.
How You Will Find Out About COVID-19 Vaccine Scheduling
We are contacting our patients as they become eligible to receive the vaccine and as we have the vaccine available, so there is no need to contact your doctor directly.
If you are a VIP patient, please review your contact information in the Patient Portal and make sure it is up to date. If you do not yet have an account, create your account now so you can schedule your appointment as soon as you are eligible.
If you meet the eligibility requirements to receive a COVID-19 vaccine and have not yet been contacted, please call us at 718-466-8244 to schedule an appointment.
Understanding the COVID-19 Vaccine
The CDC provides detailed information about the COVID-19 vaccine.
If you have specific questions about the vaccine related to your health, please contact your VIP provider.
