Where can I get vaccinated?

The LOFT LGBTQ Community Center (in partnership with Westchester County) is currently hosting four, first-dose clinics by appointment only (Information about the second dose will be given to those during their first dose inoculation). All people must be 18 years and up. These clinics are strictly for 1st-dose participants only.

  • MPV Vaccine Clinic 1: July 28-Thursday 
  • MPV Vaccine Clinic 2: August 4-Thursday 

All available appointments for Clinics 3 and 4 are filled. However, when someone cancels, their appointment is reloaded back into the system. So, if you check periodically you may find a handful of slots available for either clinic.

  • MPV Vaccine Clinic 3: August 11-Thursday
