COVID-19 vaccines will be approved for distribution to patients over a months-long process. We want to help you understand when, where, and how to seek a vaccination when the time is right. And, we’re offering guidance on how to stay safe and healthy until--and even after--you are vaccinated.
Can I get a vaccination now?
BronxDocs has begun to receive and administer COVID-19 vaccines to specific groups in accordance with the federal and state guidelines. For most patients, appointments for vaccinations will not start for several weeks, depending on eligibility. To see if you are currently eligible to receive the vaccine, please refer to the latest guidance by New York City and New York State.
If I am eligible for a vaccine, how do I receive one?
If you are part of an eligible group, you can schedule an appointment by logging into your BronxDocs patient portal. If you do not have an existing patient portal, please register for one. Online scheduling through our patient portal is the fastest and easiest way to schedule.
Please note that all patients are required to make a COVID-19 vaccine specific appointment. We will not be accommodating walk-ins.

If I am not in the eligible groups, should I make an advanced appointment?
We ask that you do not contact BronxDocs about scheduling a vaccination appointment if you are not within a federal and state defined eligibility group. If you are not in an eligible group an appointment cannot be scheduled. Your patience is important because we want to keep our Call Center and appointment scheduling systems open for patients seeking care.
What vaccine is BronxDocs administering?
At this time, BronxDocs is administering the Moderna vaccine to eligible groups. To learn more about the Moderna vaccine, click here.

Until I’m vaccinated, how do I prevent getting COVID-19?
The best ways to keep you and your family safe from COVID-19 are to:

- Wear a mask over your nose and mouth when around others.
- Avoid crowds and stay at least 6 feet away from people outside of your household.
- Monitor your health for any COVID-19 symptoms.
- Stay home if you are sick.
