On January 1, 2015, New York City Health Department clinics adopted new health insurance and billing practices in order to comply with State law and Medicaid rules. If you are 19 years old or older, immunization clinic staff members will ask for your health insurance information or a sliding scale fee based on your income and family size. If you do not have health insurance or cannot pay the fee, you will still get services.
