ALBANY, N.Y. (WSYR) — New York state will be opening 10 more state-run mass vaccination sites as the federal supply of COVID-19 vaccines increases.

Sites are still in development and will open in the coming weeks. Final details, including appointment scheduling and hours of operation, will be released in the next few days.

“Thanks to increasing vaccine supply from our partners in Washington we can utilize more of our state’s capacity to distribute doses, and once they are open, these new sites will allow us to continue to get shots into arms on a large scale,” Gov. Andrew Cuomo said. “We know the vaccine is the weapon that will win this war, but it’s only effective if we all take it, which is why we are working around the clock to establish sites like these across the state to reach as many New Yorkers as possible. The more people we vaccinate, the more we can continue our progress in keeping the infection rate at bay, reopening our economy, and defeating COVID once and for all.”
