We are all looking forward to the availability of the COVID-19 vaccine with much excitement and anticipation. New York State has begun planning for vaccine distribution. Initial supplies will be limited and will be given to healthcare workers, first responders, essential workers, and others who are most vulnerable to COVID-19.
We will let you know through the Highland Medical website and the patient portal when the vaccine is available. COVID-19 vaccines will only be administered at Primary Care Practices. You may schedule an appointment with your primary care provider for the vaccine when it becomes available for community distribution. Please call your doctor at 866-550-HMPC (4672) to schedule an appointment for care as you normally would.
For more information on the COVID-19 vaccine, visit the CDC’s FAQ as well as its page on Facts about COVID-19 Vaccines. Please continue to practice safety precautions with masks, social distancing, and hand hygiene.
Stay safe and be well!
