More New Yorkers are now eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.
That’s because on Monday Gov. Andrew Cuomo moved to Phase 1B of the state’s vaccine distribution plan, which now allows people who are 65 or older, first responders, school staffers, and more the opportunity to get the inoculation.
The first phase, in December, allowed high-risk hospital workers in New York the chance for the vaccine.
The vaccines, which are from drugmakers Pfizer and Moderna, require two doses. There’s no charge to be vaccinated.
