ALBANY, N.Y. – New Yorkers 30 and older can get vaccinated starting Tuesday, March 30, and a week later on April 6, eligibility will be expanded to anyone 16 or older.
Earlier this month, President Joe Biden said by May 1, he wanted all adults to be eligible to be vaccinated.
"Today we take a monumental step forward in the fight to beat COVID. Beginning March 30, all New Yorkers age 30 or older will be able to be vaccinated, and all New Yorkers age 16 or older will be eligible on April 6, well ahead of the May 1 deadline set by the White House,” said Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
According to the state’s COVID-19 Vaccine Tracker, nearly 17% of New Yorkers have been fully vaccinated so far, and nearly 30% have received at least one dose.
Appointments are available at the MVHS New Hartford location on Burrstone Road.
