ALBANY, N.Y. (WROC) — Governor Kathy Hochul announced the latest update on the state’s progress combating COVID-19.

“The vaccine is the most important tool we have to end the COVID-19 pandemic, revitalize our communities and bring New York’s economy back, and that’s why it’s so important that every eligible New Yorker get vaccinated as soon as possible,” Governor Hochul said. “New York State is hitting the ground running to get shots in arms, and we continue to launch new initiatives to get the shot to under vaccinated communities and our young people. I urge everyone who hasn’t taken the vaccine to do so right away—the faster we defeat this pandemic, the faster we move into the future.”
