It got a lot easier to get a COVID vaccine for some New Yorkers on Saturday. City-run vaccination sites are now taking walk-in appointments for anyone over the age of 50. @JohnBDias reports.
Gov. Cuomo says more than 50% of New Yorkers 18 years of age and older have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine
🚨 Just got this reminder text: All New Yorkers ages 16 years and older can now receive the COVID-19 vaccine in NYC. Visit to make your appointment.
Gov. Cuomo says more than 50% of New Yorkers 18 years of age and older have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.
Remember: We still have about 2,000 new COVID hospitalizations daily. And we lost 540 New Yorkers yesterday. That is a soul-crushing loss. When you feel tired of social distancing, think of those we lost. That's what's at stake here.
We lost 799 New Yorkers yesterday to this invisible enemy. We mourn them and stand in support of their families and loved ones. There are no words that can express our grief and heartbreak. The lives lost to COVID are a loss to the very fabric of NY.
