Dear NYS COVID-19 Vaccine Provider:
This email includes updated information about submission of weekly planning requests (“prebook requests”) for COVID-19 vaccine for your provider location enrolled in the NYSDOH COVID-19 Vaccine Program to include Janssen (Johnson and Johnson) vaccine. The requests are always due by 5 pm each Monday and must be data entered in NYSIIS on Monday (and not in advance). If your facility location is closed on all or any Mondays, please ensure that a designated staff person is identified to perform the data entry each Monday. The system is accessible remotely from any computer. This is necessary due to the timing of when NYSDOH must make allocation decisions and place orders.
Beginning March 1, 2021, in addition to Pfizer and Moderna vaccines, you will be able to submit a planning request for Janssen vaccine (Johnson and Johnson). Janssen vaccine is a single-dose vaccine that will be transported and stored at refrigerated temperatures (36 to 46 degrees Fahrenheit or 2 to 8 degrees Celsius). A product summary for each vaccine is listed below.
The entire planning request amount (combination of Pfizer + Moderna + Janssen) must not exceed the total overall amount you are able to store and administer to eligible populations within seven days from receipt. The planning request amounts must be entered in multiples of the minimum shipping quantity for each product.
