Vaccine Updates

 

Mount Sinai Health System is vaccinating Mount Sinai-affiliated outpatient/ambulatory front-line, high-risk health care workers of any age who provide direct in-person patient care. This includes MSHP providers and their practice staff with patient-facing, in-person responsibilities. Please see below details regarding scheduling. Note that walk-in vaccination is not available at any of our locations at this time.

Physician Vaccination

Physicians should have have already received an email with a link to make an appointment via Zocdoc at any of our Mount Sinai locations. If you cannot locate this email, please contact the MSHP Provider Services Support Team at 866-234-6667 or via email. Please be sure to bring a government-issued ID with you to your appointment.

Practice Staff Vaccination

Patient-facing practice staff who meet these criteria are now eligible to be vaccinated: "part of a Mount Sinai-affiliated outpatient/ambulatory front-line, high-risk health care worker of any age who provides direct in-person patient care, or other staff in a position in which they have direct contact with patients”

Scheduling Directions for Mount Sinai Beth Israel, Mount Sinai West, Mount Sinai Morningside, Mount Sinai Brooklyn, Mount Sinai Queens

If your patient-facing staff prefer to schedule an appointment, please use this Scheduling Request Form to submit the names of your staff members that meet the criteria listed in the above bullet point. You must submit a separate form for each staff person. We are asking that each name that is submitted is verified by you, a provider credentialed within Mount Sinai Health System or by Mount Sinai Health Partners, by entering your National Provider Identification (NPI) number in the form mentioned above.

Once the scheduling request form is submitted, we will verify the NPI number given internally and each staff name submitted will be sent an e-mail from do-not-reply@mountsinai.org where they will be able to self-schedule via Zocdoc online to receive their vaccination at one of our Mount Sinai Vaccination pods. These e-mails will be sent out 48-72 hours after scheduling request form submission.

Important note: In adherence with the direction provided by the New York State Department of Health, patient-facing practice staff must arrive with both a government-issued ID and a letter from the practice that indicates their job title/role and states that their role is patient-facing. They will complete an eligibility attestation form onsite before receiving the vaccine.

Scheduling Directions for The Mount Sinai Hospital

For an appointment at Mount Sinai Hospital, please send an email with a list of eligible patient-facing staff with first and last name and date of birth to hospital.administration@mountsinai.org as soon as possible. Our vaccination pod leadership will respond to these lists with a daily allotment and an hourly schedule for the number of eligible individuals to be sent for vaccination. It is anticipated that the majority of non-Mount Sinai Health System high-risk health care workers will be accommodated in the later afternoon, evening hours and on weekends.

The vaccination pod in the GP Atrium is currently open Monday-Friday 7:30 am to 9 pm and Saturday-Sunday 7:30 am to 3 pm.

Mental Health & Wellness

 

This is a stressful time for all of us. As a provider, it is natural to want to focus primarily on caring for patients. However, please remember to take care of yourself as well. Below are some resources that may be helpful to you in your own self-care. Some resources may also be useful to share with patients who report emotional distress in these difficult times.
