There are three ways to schedule a vaccine appointment with us:

Appointments are first-come, first-served and you will be assigned the first available slot. Please bring a valid ID with you. Please note, unlike the NYS vaccine sites, the amount and type of vaccine we have available changes each week. Currently we’ve been provided with Moderna and Pfizer – both of which are safe and effective. When you arrive for your appointment, we will let you know which vaccine you are receiving.

To Cancel an appointment or ask a question, call call (585) 758-0008 Monday through Friday. You can also cancel in MyChart.

There are three ways to schedule an appointment with us:

Yes, we currently have two locations: Saunders Building Vaccination Center on the URMC campus and Manhattan Square Vaccination Center in the city of Rochester. Eligible UR Medicine Primary Care patients who have an appointment with UR Medicine will be directed to go to one of these locations.

We are continuing to call our eligible Primary Care patients as vaccine becomes available. But, since we don’t know how much supply we will get each week, we encourage you to look for appointments at other vaccine clinics run by the state or offered by local pharmacies. Visit the Finger Lakes Vaccine Hub website or the NYS Am I Eligible website.

Generally, we are calling our Primary Care patients between 5 to 8 p.m. on weekdays, and 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. on weekends. Caller ID will show University of Rochester or (585) 340-3779. Unfortunately we are unable to leave voice mails or accept incoming calls.

Unfortunately, to make sure we fill up all slots as quickly as we can, we are unable to leave messages or receive call backs.  Your name will be marked as uncalled, and put back in the pool from which names are randomly selected.

We are using the communications preferences identified by patients in eRecord to contact them. Text and MyChart are typically identified as the preferred mode for communication for this community. The communication mode selected by any of our patients in no way reduces their opportunity to be contacted for a vaccine appointment.

You must bring a photo ID to your appointment to get your vaccination. If you meet the eligibility requirements for a chronic medical condition, a doctor’s note is not needed; you will fill out an eligibility form when you register online. More information for those with an appointment.
