Where & How To Get A COVID-19 Vaccine In Brooklyn?

Mira Research Team25 Mar 2021

Quick Digest: 

  • New York is currently in expanded phase 1b of vaccine distribution. Accordingly, healthcare workers, long-term care residents, individuals 65 and older, essential workers, first-responders, teachers, and corrections officers/inmates can receive the vaccine.
  • New York will expand vaccinations to people eligible in subsequent phases as supply allows. More essential workers, people with underlying health conditions, and other at-risk groups can expect to receive the vaccine by February or April. The vaccine will be made available to everyone in the Summer of 2021.

What you need to know about the COVID-19 Vaccine in Brooklyn, NY

In December 2020, the FDA granted emergency use authorization to the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines. 

  • Both vaccines demonstrated over 94% effectiveness in preventing COVID-19 during clinical trials.
  • Both vaccines utilize mRNA to teach your body how to recognize and kill the coronavirus should you be exposed. Since mRNA cannot enter the nucleus of cells, these vaccines will not alter your DNA.
  • Both vaccines require two doses, spaced approximately three to four weeks apart. Immunity will take time to build once you have been vaccinated, so you should continue to take precautions and act as though you are not vaccinated. Continue to wear a mask, practice social distancing, and wash your hand with soap and water.
  • Your second dose needs to be from the same company as your first dose. In other words, if you received the Pfizer vaccine for your first dose, you need to receive the Pfizer vaccine for your second dose.

The COVID-19 vaccine is available in Brooklyn, NY for all who qualify in Phase 1b

New York is currently allowing people in phase 1a and 1b to get vaccinated. Although demand for the vaccine is extremely high, the current supply does not suffice for all individuals who are eligible to receive a vaccine. Therefore, just because you are eligible, does not mean you will be able to get vaccinated immediately. The following people are currently eligible to receive the Covid-19 vaccine in New York.

What do I need to bring with me to my COVID-19 vaccine appointment?

Below are several items you must bring to your appointment in order to receive your vaccine. 

Please note that you will only be able to receive a vaccine if you are eligible under the current phase of distribution and have an appointment. Please do not show up to a vaccination center without an appointment — walk-in vaccines will not be offered. 

  • Government-issued picture ID
  • Insurance Card
  • Mask/Face Coverings to be Worn at All Times
  • Copy of your Appointment Confirmation

How much will the COVID-19 vaccine cost in Brooklyn?

The U.S. government bought several hundred million doses of the COVID-19 vaccines as part of Operation Warp Speed. 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently announced that nobody will have to pay for the cost of a vaccine that was purchased by the government. 

However, it is possible to be charged for the administration of the vaccine if being vaccinated at a private doctor’s office or pharmacy. 

We estimate that if your vaccine location charges an administrative fee, it can cost between $16 and $29 per dose if you do not have insurance. 

After the pandemic is over and the government no longer purchases vaccines, people may have to pay between $25 and $58 for a COVID-19 vaccination.
