The NYC Dept. of Health has immunization clinics set up to provide vaccinations on a first come, first served basis- no appointment necessary. Especially since we are facing flu season, this information may be important to have on hand.
The clinics are set up to provide vaccinations for kids ages 4 and up, teens, and adults.
The vaccines available are:
- Hepatitis B vaccine (for children and high-risk adults through age 59)
- Hepatitis A vaccine (for high risk adults through age 59)
- Diphtheria, tetanus & pertussis combination vaccines, including Tdap and DTaP
- Tetanus (Td) vaccine
- Measles, Mumps & Rubella (MMR) combination vaccine
- Pneumococcal (PPSV23) vaccine
- Human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine for males and females 9 through 18 years
- Meningococcal vaccine (for children 11 through 18 years old)
- Influenza vaccine (will be available beginning Fall 2012)
