IMPORTANT COVID-19 VACCINE INFORMATION

COVID-19 vaccinations are currently not readily available to General Physician, PC. Please see information below.

We are aware of the newly released list of comorbidities and underlying conditions that New York State will use to determine the COVID-19 vaccine eligibility. New Yorkers who have one of the comorbidities will be eligible for the vaccine beginning February 15th. 

However, at this time General Physician, PC does not have the vaccine available for distribution based on current guidelines. 

Once we have the vaccine for distribution, at the direction of the New York State Department of Health, physician groups, such as General Physician, PC, according to current state guidelines, will be able to vaccinate only persons aged 65 and older.

FOR PATIENTS 65 and OLDER: Once the vaccine is available for our patients 65 and older, you will receive notification through your patient portal, email, or here on our website. Please Note: Should there be an opportunity within the community to become vaccinated before General Physician, PC reaching out to you, please feel free to proceed with that opportunity and then let your primary care office know. 

FOR PATIENTS UNDER AGE 65: If you are under age 65 and fall into the comorbidity category, you will need to obtain a letter from your physician to receive the vaccine. Please contact your physician either through the patient portal or by calling the office to get the letter. 

In addition, if you are under age 65 and fall into that comorbidity category and need to find a specific location where you can receive the vaccine, please go to New York | Covid-19 Vaccine (ny.gov)

Vaccine Allocations per The New York State Department of Health Limited amounts of the COVID-19 vaccine are available for New York’s COVID-19 Vaccination Program. The amount of vaccine the state receives is based upon the allocation made to New York by the federal government. The New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) then determines state allocations to providers and entities who have enrolled to administer the vaccine. Executive Order 202.91 also sets forth mandatory prioritization for vaccination by provider type. 

Thank you for your patience as we continue to work with the NYS Department of Health. Please stay healthy and be safe!

While we are seeing younger women with breast cancer, it isn’t because of a greater incidence of the disease. It is because of a greater awareness, and lack of stigma. Globally we have more survivors than ever before. Increased awareness, research, and better technology, helps us find cancer earlier.
