  • Many appointments with a registered nurse can be handled on a walk-in basis, but we strongly encourage you to contact Medical Services at 212-854-7426 in advance to ensure we can accommodate your schedule.
  • Walk-in appointments are available for students who need vaccines, tuberculosis skin tests, or pregnancy screenings.
