Make your child’s COVID-19 vaccination truly memorable and rewarding with free admission for up to four people! The American Museum of Natural History, along with all New York City vaccination sites, is now offering COVID-19 vaccinations to children ages 5–11. The Museum vaccination site is open seven days a week, from 10 am to 5 pm.

Though the site accommodates walk-in appointments, scheduling an appointment in advance is strongly recommended. To schedule a vaccination appointment, visit vaccinefinder.nyc.gov or call 877-VAX-4NYC (or 877-829-4692). Note that a parent or guardian must be present during vaccination appointments for children ages 5–15. For ages 16–17, a parent or guardian must be present or reachable by phone during the vaccination appointment. To help with capacity at the vaccination site, we request that only one parent or guardian join each child for their vaccination. Enter the Museum at the West 77th Street entrance to access the vaccination site.

All those who get vaccinated at the Museum will receive a voucher for free admission for up to four people.

This month, the Museum is also presenting two free virtual programs about COVID-19 and vaccines. You can learn more and RSVP at the site:
