Vaccination made more accessible to New Yorkers
New York City authorities have expanded access to vaccination against the new coronavirus for the city's entire population, regardless of neighborhood. This was announced on Friday by Mayor Bill De Blasio at a press conference, which was broadcast on his Twitter account.
It is worth noting that previously the vaccination was available to New York City residents at their place of residence and by appointment only.
Bill De Blasio said: "Convenience is important for all New York City residents. Now you can just show up and get the vaccine".
What's more, vaccination was previously available to New Yorkers on a residential basis and by appointment only. A week ago, authorities allowed residents over the age of 50 to come to specialty centres to get vaccinated without an appointment. This opportunity is now available to all residents of America's largest metropolis. In total, more than 6 million doses of the coronavirus vaccine have been used in New York City, according to de Blasio.
