The last several months have taught us a lot about what’s essential. Essential workers. Essential supplies. Essential businesses. Now it’s time to attend to another essential – your health. Not getting prompt, proper, regular medical care can have long-term consequences.

At White Plains Hospital and our physicians’ practices, we’ve exceeded the state and federal guidelines to protect you. Infection control was always our priority, and now we’ve taken further action, creating separate COVID patient areas, implementing extensive cleaning practices, and enhancing screening for all staff and patients.

The vaccines to protect against COVID-19 are being rolled-out nationally, and hopefully represent the beginning of the end of this pandemic.  Effective, Monday, January 11, New York State has expanded the list of people eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccination to Group 1B. This group includes first responders, public safety and transit workers, education workers, and individuals 65 years and older.

You can visit the New York State "Am I Eligible" website at: to find out when you can receive the vaccine. Vaccine allotment and distribution plans are dependent on guidance from the New York State Department of Health.  White Plains Hospital does not currently have the vaccine and we will update our patients via email and continue to update this website as more information becomes available.  

Once you are eligible, we encourage you to get vaccinated. COVID-19 can cause severe medical complications and lead to death in some people. Getting a vaccine is a major step in protecting you from getting COVID-19 or keep you from becoming seriously ill if you do get the virus. Our goal is to vaccinate as many people as quickly as possible in accordance with the Department of Health’s prioritization.
