A Message for Our MSK Community on the COVID-19 Vaccines


Dear Members of the MSK Community,

Millions of Americans have safely received a COVID-19 vaccine. The vaccines are saving lives, keeping people from becoming sick with COVID-19 and offer the world the best hope to conquer the pandemic.

In New York State, we are pleased to offer COVID-19 vaccines to MSK patients who are age 12 and over.

In accordance with the emergency use authorization by the Food and Drug Administration, patients ages 12-15 will receive the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine.   

In New Jersey, we are offering COVID-19 vaccines to MSK patients who are age 18 and over and live, work, or study in New Jersey.

Eligible patients can use this link to schedule a vaccination appointment. For people 12-17 years old, a parent or guardian must call their MSK doctor’s office to schedule a vaccination. You will not be able to schedule online.

For more details on making a vaccine appointment including availability in New Jersey, read here.

Please remember that your appointment is only an appointment for you to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. The specialized team of care providers in our vaccination clinic will not be able to talk with you about your medical care. If you have any questions about your medical care, please contact your primary MSK care team.

For more information about the COVID-19 vaccines and how we know they are highly effective and safe, please visit these resources on our website.
