Immunization and Vaccine Resources

Racial and ethnic minority groups are disproportionately affected when it comes to receiving recommended vaccines. Many factors can contribute to lower vaccination rates, including concerns about vaccine safety and limited access to care and health coverage.

Prepare for Flu Season

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, vaccination rates have declined, putting communities at an increased risk for preventable diseases. With the flu season approaching, CMS OMH has compiled a list of flu and immunization resources for health care providers, partners, and patients to help everyone prepare for flu season. We have also prepared a list of resources in other languages.

The CDC recommends everyone six months of age or older needs a flu vaccine. Most health insurance plans cover recommended vaccines at no or low cost to patients and are available at most health care provider offices. The flu vaccine, along with other vaccines, are also available at local pharmacies, health centers, health departments, and travel clinics.

Childhood Vaccine Resources

The CDC now recommends children ages 5-11 get a COVID-19 vaccine to help protect against COVID-19. Children ages 5 and older are able to get an age-appropriate dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine. The federal government is providing the COVID-19 vaccine free of charge to all people living in the U.S. regardless of immigration or health status.

Check with your child’s provider about whether they offer COVID-19 vaccination or your local pharmacy to see if walk-ins or appointments are available for children.
