COVID-19 Vaccine Information for Patients
Your health and safety are our priority. We encourage our patients to protect themselves and those around them. Please get vaccinated, get boosted, and wear a mask.
The FDA and CDC recommend that everyone age 6 months and older get vaccinated against COVID-19. Everyone age 5 and older should get a single booster dose, and those who are 50 and older should receive a second booster dose.
If you have cancer now or have had cancer, you may need an additional primary COVID-19 vaccine dose beyond what is recommended for the general public, as well as a second booster shot.
The CDC also has resources to guide you on the timing of shots, including additional doses and booster doses.
- If you need to schedule your first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine at MSK, you can schedule it using this online tool.
- If you are eligible for an additional shot or a booster shot, you can use this online tool to schedule it at MSK.
- To schedule a COVID-19 vaccination for a child or adolescent ages 6 months to 17 years old, please contact the child’s primary MSK provider.
- We have limited vaccination appointments available. You can find a location with vaccine availability through the CDC Vaccine Finder.
Guidelines are changing about what to do if you have been exposed to COVID-19. You may have questions about what people with cancer and their caregivers should do. Read more about COVID-19 testing and how to manage COVID-19 at home.
