New York City provides referrals for all recommended immunizations for children ages 4 and older.

You can also get referrals for:

  • Children under 4 years of age
  • School medical exams
  • Tuberculosis (TB) tests

As of January 1, 2015, New York City Health Department clinics adopted new health insurance and billing practices in order to comply with State law and Medicaid rules. If you are 19 or older, immunization clinic staff will ask for your health insurance information or a sliding scale fee based on your income and family size. If you do not have health insurance or cannot pay the fee, you will still get services.

NYC Health + Hospitals offers comprehensive medical care for all New York City children from birth to age 21. Vaccinations are also available by appointment for children 0-2 years old at all NYC Health + Hospitals health care centers.
