As of February 14, 2021, New Yorkers with comorbidities and underlying conditions, including pregnancy, are eligible to receive the COVID19 vaccine. Vaccine appointments can be made at authorized vaccination sites throughout the State of New York.
Currently, the COVID-19 vaccine IS NOT available at our practice locations.
If you have any of the conditions listed in Governor Cuomo’s announcement on February 5, 2021, we strongly recommend you book an appointment on the New York State DOH website.
If you are eligible for vaccination based on the new eligibility guidelines, you are required to provide the vaccination site with a letter from your doctor verifying your qualifying medical condition. We are working to quickly identify patients with these conditions according to the information we have in our electronic health record. If you have a portal account, please contact us through the portal to request a letter of eligibility that will be emailed to you.
The updates from the CDC Registry data are very reassuring. The frequency of pregnancy complications was no different from what would be expected in pregnant women. Our doctors are available for consultation if you would like to discuss the COVID vaccine in pregnancy.
