NYC Health + Hospitals knows that children have unique needs and require special care. That’s why we encourage routine visits to our primary care medical homes so we get to know your child to build a foundation for their best health. Our emphasis on preventive care helps you and your child take steps to prevent injuries and illness too.
Even during the COVID-19 pandemic, it is important your child doesn’t fall behind on their vaccine schedule. Vaccinations are available at NYC Health + Hospitals sites that are located throughout New York City.
Special attention has been placed on ensuring that these sites are safe and are following recommendations to decrease your exposure to germs during your visit.
NYC Health + Hospitals health care centers give children all the health care they need because we’ve transformed our public health care system from treating illness to promoting health, including:
Immunizations and annual flu shots
Asthma and diabetes screenings
Mental health screenings and counseling.
Our other comprehensive services for children include:
Pediatric outpatient care for routine and specialized health care for children
Pediatric Urgent Care / Emergency Departments for children and adolescents
Pediatric specialists who treat asthma, allergies, diabetes, and mental health issues.

We offer comprehensive services for adolescents and teenagers, who often have different needs than younger children do. You can learn more about these at Adolescent Health Services.
