ALBANY, N.Y. – New York expanded vaccine eligibility to more essential workers on Wednesday, including government and public employees, nonprofit workers and those who provide building services.
These additional categories include public works employees, social and child service caseworkers, government inspectors, sanitation workers, DMV workers, county clerks and election workers, among others.
All vaccination sites, other than pharmacies, can also start giving shots to anyone who is eligible starting Wednesday. Pharmacies will continue to prioritize those 60 and older.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced the updates last week, saying they would be effective March 17.
