COVID Vaccine- 10/19 Update

The coverage of the Seasonal COVID vaccine is now in the private sector.  As of 10/19, we can confirm coverage from these insurance companies:

Aetna, Anthem/Empire Blue Cross Blue Shield, CDPHP, HighmarkNYS, Empire Plan (NYSHIP), United Healthcare, MVP, & CIGNA.

As of 10/31/23 we are still waiting on coverage decisions from Tricare.  If your insurance makes a decision to not cover the vaccine (we feel this is highly unlikely), you would be eligible to get the vaccine through the government program called VFC (Vaccine for Children).  Please note – if your insurance decides to put this into a deductible – that is not eligible for VFC.  This is more likely with an employer sponsored self insured plan.  

Staff are unable to make appointments by phone.  Login to your portal account and select 

  1. Appointments –> Book Online Appointments.  
  2. For Provider select Visit, Vaccine. 
  3. For Visit Type select the appropriate Vaccine Visit Type (5-59 months, 5-11 years or 12 years and up).  
  4. Reason – Type in: e.g. Pfizer 5-11 Dose 1. If you plan on getting another vaccine at the same visit please add that to the reason. (e.g. Pfizer 5-11 Dose 1 and Flu Vaccine).
  5. Enter a preferred date or leave blank for first available. 
  6. Then click Search.  Online appointments will be available in advance.  Parents and Grandparents can get appointments also, but will need to speak to our staff to register and get their own portal account. 

If you have an upcoming well visit, you may also get the vaccine.   If you intend to vaccinate at your well appointment, please send a message through your web portal account. 

IMPORTANT: For all appointments (Nurse vaccine appointments or Well Visit Appointments) you will also need to print out the REQUIRED forms as noted above.

Finally, there is no charge to you for the vaccine. We do bill your insurance company for the administration. This charge is regulated and has no cost share to you. If you are a parent or grandparent, please fill out the following Insurance Information to capture your insurance. Thank you .
