Vaccine Appointment Information
If you received Dose 1 from Mount Sinai and are scheduled to receive Dose 2, we encourage you to keep your appointment. However, if you:
- Need to reschedule due to an emergency or weather
- Believe your Dose 2 appointment was canceled in error
Please call us at 646-605-5760. This line is NOT for general questions about the vaccine or new appointments.
Because of changes in our COVID-19 vaccine supply, we are unable to schedule new vaccination appointments for patients, and unfortunately will have to cancel those already scheduled. You may want to consider vaccination options through New York State and New York City. All second-dose and employee vaccinations are proceeding as scheduled.
Mount Sinai will continue to honor all appointments for second doses and is committed to providing a second dose of COVID-19 vaccine to everyone who received their first dose at a Mount Sinai Health System facility. However, in accordance with state guidance, we are unfortunately not able to accommodate second-dose requests from those who received their first dose elsewhere. If you received your first dose outside Mount Sinai and need a second dose, please contact the following for assistance:
New York City: 311 or 877-VAX-4NYC (877-829-4692)
New York State: 1-833-NYS-4VAX (833-697-4829)
Please note that New York State is now requiring proof of residency or employment in the state in order to be vaccinated here, and you must complete the New York State COVID-19 Vaccine Form and attest that you are eligible to be vaccinated. We must receive confirmation of eligibility for you to receive the vaccination.

If you regularly take aspirin, acetaminophen (e.g., Tylenol), or ibuprofen (e.g., Motrin, Advil) for other medical conditions, continue to do so as directed by your physician or as needed. Otherwise, do not take these medications before getting vaccinated. Taking over-the-counter medications like these before receiving a vaccine may decrease your immune response to the vaccine, making it less effective. After the vaccination, you can take an over-the-counter medication as needed to address side effects from the vaccine.
Per New York State guidance, we are continuing to vaccinate our eligible employees and our voluntary faculty and staff.
The guidelines set by the New York State Department of Health have been rapidly changing—and we are committed to providing the latest information. Please be patient and do not call your doctor’s office or our facilities about COVID-19 vaccination appointments at this time.
