The Biden administration is giving New York’s COVID-19 vaccination effort another sizable shot in the arm, Gov. Andrew Cuomo reported Tuesday.
During a conference call with reporters following his meeting with White House staff, the governor reported that New York state would get another 5% boost per week in COVID-9 vaccine supply over the next three weeks. That’s on top of previously announced increases of 250,000 weekly doses provided to New York during the final days of the former presidential administration.
The Empire State figures to get more than 330,000 Pfizer and Moderna vaccines each week over the next 21 days, Cuomo said. And there may be more doses to come through federal programs supporting community hospitals and pharmacies.
