NYS Physicians Practices Begin to Receive COVID-19 Vaccine 
Physicians are Encouraged to Take NYS DOH Survey

Today, the Medical Society of the State of New York was notified by the New York State Department of Health that 27,100 Moderna doses were allocated to 190 enrolled COVID-19 providers. All physicians and other providers that pre-booked Moderna were given 100 doses. An additional 100 doses were given to practices that were identified by the Local Health Departments (LHDs) as preferred partners and/or had high patient volumes. 

This is good news! MSSNY has long advocated for physicians to receive the vaccine to immunize their patients and this is an important step in helping to stop the pandemic. 

In anticipation of increased supply, New York State is undertaking efforts to collect information from enrolled providers. This information is critical to understand how to best expand the supply flow.
