The New York Daily News reports:
The de Blasio administration is ramping up COVID vaccination efforts — with a goal of administering 400,000 doses per week by the end of the month — and calling on the state to authorize more groups of New Yorkers to get shots.
The city will also provide vaccinations around the clock as the number of distribution sites grows, de Blasio said at a Monday press conference.
“This is a whatever-it-takes situation,” he said as he announced three high schools will be used as distribution sites starting Sunday, with more to come. That will bring the total number of locations where New Yorkers can get the vaccine to 160, with a goal of 250 such locations established by the end of the month, de Blasio said.
The de Blasio administration ramps up COVID vaccination efforts — with a goal of 400,000 doses per week by the end of January.
NYC has an average infection rate of 9% over a recent seven-day period — well above the 1-2% range from the summer.https://t.co/pPPnXmng0t
