If scheduling your first dose:
You will need to schedule a second dose separately for no earlier than four weeks (28 days) from the date of your first vaccination. If there are no available appointments for that timeframe, please check back as more appointments will be made available.

**If your second dose appointment is more than four weeks (28 days) after your first dose appointment, this is not a problem. You should just get the second dose as soon as the next appointments are available. Your highest level of immunity is expected to be two weeks after your second dose, so reduce your risks accordingly. Please see the links below.**

If scheduling your second dose:

  • By signing up for a second dose, you attest that the date of the appointment you select is no less than four weeks (28 days) from your first dose.
  • You do not need to have received a first dose at our site in order to sign up for a second dose.

If you cannot keep your appointment, please cancel through your confirmation email/text or call (631) 726-8388 so that we can offer the appointment time to someone else. If all vaccination slots are booked, please check back for future availability.

For a record of your vaccination, please contact your primary care provider, who can access it from the New York State Immunization Information Registry. It may take up to two weeks for the record to be available.

Please bring ID to your vaccination appointment. Masks are required.

Medical Questions About Side Effects

If you have medically related questions, such as vaccination side effects and/or adverse reactions from the monkeypox vaccine, we recommend that you:

  • Please contact your primary care physician, who is the appropriate and best provider to answer your questions.
  • Please DO NOT contact The Edie Windsor Healthcare Center directly. Unfortunately, we cannot answer questions for individuals who are not established patients of our clinic.
  • If you do not have a primary care physician or your primary care physician does not answer your questions, please seek care at an urgent care clinic or call the Suffolk County Department of Health at 311.

Due to the high volume of calls, we ask that you not contact The Edie Windsor Healthcare Center or Stony Brook Southampton Hospital to schedule a monkeypox vaccine.

To learn more about the monkeypox vaccine and potential side effects, etc., please visit the New York State Department of Health website or the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
