The Moderna mRNA vaccines and boosters will be offered from 10 a.m.–noon, followed by Pfizer-BioNTech from noon–6 p.m.
In accordance with CDC’s recommendation, updated NY State Department of Health guidance acknowledges the increased risk of severe disease for certain populations, making a second mRNA booster available for those who may choose to increase their protection further, as explained above (those ages 50+ who received a first booster at least four months ago).

New Yorkers ages 12 and older who are moderately or severely immunocompromised may choose to receive a second booster dose of an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine (Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna) at least four months after their first booster dose.
Walk-ins will be accepted following scheduled appointments if time permits, but appointments are encouraged and advised.
