Our goal is to make most appointments available on the same day. In some situations it may be more appropriate to make appointments a day or more in advance.
- 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.
- For allergy injections, contact Medical Services to schedule an appointment with a registered nurse for an initial assessment. Subsequent visits will be scheduled in advance for you after your initial visit.
- Tobacco cessation appointments with an RN are walk-ins. You can also schedule an appointment on-line with a tobacco cessation counselor.
- Travel Medicine: Call 212-854-7426 for an initial telephone screen with a registered nurse. Arrangements will then be made for a follow-up, where you will come to Medical Services for vaccination.
