Vaccine Update

We are grateful for your interest in getting vaccinated and helping us fight back the threat of COVID-19. We also appreciate your understanding as we continue to follow all New York State Department of Health (NYS DOH) guidelines.

Currently state regulations only allow us to offer vaccines to those eligible in Group 1A and those who are 65+.  Unfortunately, we are NOT able to vaccinate any other group at this time.
This means those in Group 1B and those with comorbidities
are NOT able to be vaccinated at our hospital.

When we have vaccine appointments available for those in Group 1A and those who are 65+ we will post immediately to the Long Island Community Hospital Facebook page.
We will also post a link on this page. This allows us to distribute the appointments fairly to our eligible community members. We do not keep wait lists.

Please make sure you are eligible before selecting an available appointment.
Be prepared to bring appropriate proof of employment (work ID) or age (driver license) with you to your appointment to show your eligibility.

Please only make an appointment if you know you can keep it. We want to be sure to help as many community members as possible and we want to continue not to waste one single dose.
You will get two emails once you have finished the online form. One will be a confirmation of your appointment and the second will be a consent form with additional directions for you to follow for your appointment.

You will be given an appointment for your second dose on-site when you come for your first vaccine. Rest assured that second doses have been reserved for those who have already received their first dose.

When we do not have a link available here for appointments, or if you fall into Group 1B or have comorbidities please visit the state’s Am I Eligible vaccine website for current appointment availability at other locations..

We look forward to more of our community being vaccinated as we fight COVID-19 together. Please continue to be as safe as possible. Use your masks. Wash your hands. Practice socially distancing.

Be Sure to Get Your Second Dose

You will be given an appointment for your second dose on-site when you come for your first vaccine. Rest assured that second doses have been reserved for those who have already received their first dose.
Please be sure to get your second dose to ensure you have the proper protection.

We look forward to more of our community being vaccinated as we fight COVID-19 together. Please continue to be as safe as possible. Use your masks. Wash your hands. Practice socially distancing.
