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.

Effective, April 6, New York State expanded the list of people eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccination to Groups 1A and 1B, those 16 years and older. To find out if you are eligible, visit the New York State Vaccination website.

New Yorkers with underlying medical conditions are required to attest on the New York State Vaccination website that they have a comorbidity before they can register for a vaccination appointment. This form is automatically generated during the online registration process. NYS DOH also requires all individuals to complete the New York State COVID-19 Vaccine Form prior to their vaccination appointment. Proof of completion must be presented at the vaccination site on the day of your appointment. Should any White Plains Hospital, White Plains Hospital Physician Associates or Scarsdale Medical Group patients need further evidence of their underlying conditions, this is most quickly and conveniently accessed online through your MyChart account. Instructions are available here. 

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.

At this time we do not have the vaccine available. Please check back regularly for the latest updates.
