New York Attempts To Accelerate The Vaccination Process, Governor Cuomo Announces An Expanded Network

New York – 09 Jan 2021 – Today, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced the expansion of the vaccination distribution network of the state to speed up the availability of COVID-19 vaccine to the residents of New York. Now, both the eligible citizens under the group 1A and 1B can get vaccinated.

To support this effort, a large number of distribution sites and new providers are coming forward throughout the state. New Yorkers over the age of 75 and essential workers can make a reservation for vaccination at the administration sites from 11th Jan, Monday.

“In the past few weeks, we’ve seen hospitals increasing their vaccination rates. I’d like to show gratitude to them for their efforts. However, it’s still not up to the level. Therefore, we’ll be speeding up the distribution of the vaccine.” says Governor Cuomo.

He also added “We’ll be establishing a network of numerous distributors across to both vaccinate health care workers and supplement the hospitals. This will also allow us to start vaccinating individuals over 75 years of age and other essential workers.”

Governor Cuomo also stated that the supply of the vaccine is completely controlled by the federal government. Therefore, as the New York state receives more vaccine doses, they’ll make sure it is distributed in the fairest way possible.

However, Cuomo stressed that healthcare workers should be the first ones to receive the doses so that the hospital staff remains operational at all costs. As of now, there are over 2.1 million New Yorkers available in the group 1A for vaccination.

This group involves hospital workers, senior citizens living in assisted-living facilities and nursing homes, health care workers, and people with certain disabilities. The distribution sites for the doses are established within the premises of the hospital for faster operations.

While there’s a gradual growth in the vaccination speed, there’s still a need for further acceleration to cope up with the virus. To do so, the Governor has established a new group named 1B that includes people ageing 75 or more and healthcare workers.

To prioritize the vaccination of this group, the state has established an additional network of distribution sites that’ll prevent hospitals from getting overburdened by supplementing them in the vaccination process.

The group 1B is also the largest and includes over 3.2 million New Yorkers including educational workers, public safety workers, first responders and so on. A complete list of group members can be found on the New York State Website.
