All COVID-19 vaccines currently available in the United States have been shown to be safe and effective at preventing COVID-19.
Protect yourself and others from COVID-19.
If you do get sick with COVID-19, your symptoms will likely be mild
You can start doing more. Per CDC regulations, vaccinated individuals can gather indoors without masks with other people who are fully vaccinated. People who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 should keep taking precautions in public places like wearing a mask, staying 6 feet apart from others, avoiding crowds and poorly ventilated spaces, and washing your hands often.
Getting COVID-19 may offer some protection, known as natural immunity. Current evidence suggests that reinfection with the virus that causes COVID-19 is uncommon in the months after initial infection, but may increase with time.
Apicha's COVID-19 Vaccine Availability
Although Apicha is one of the vaccine sites, we only receive a small number of vaccine doses therefore we cannot vaccinate all our eligible patients. Per NYC Department of Health instructions, we continue to prioritize patients over 65 as well as patients eligible based on their job type.
Please do not call us or send us portal messages requesting appointments. If you are eligible and have not yet received a call from us, you can search for availability through the NYC Vaccine Finder.
