New York State is seeking to expand access beyond its network of clinics, public health authorities, and health centers, which generate 10 COVID-19 for children ages 5-11 who were recently eligible for the Pfizer BioNTech vaccine. We will open the page for mass vaccination. And the pharmacy.
Governor Kathy Hokul said on Saturday that she had directed high-dose vaccination sites to accept pediatric doses and prepared to deliver them to those sites and eventually the state to 13 vaccination sites. He added that he intended to provide staff.
“Because this 5 to 11 year age group is targeted, we advise parents to contact their pediatrician or local health care provider to arrange a vaccination appointment. Currently in the state. We instruct them to open a mass vaccination facility. Doors to the youngest New Yorker and last eligible,” Governor Hokur said in a statement.
Locations selected included the three provinces of New York, Yonkers, Glenhead and Stony Brook on Long Island, as well as the northern cities of Albany, Buffalo, Rochester and Syracuse. The state encourages parents and guardians to check website availability and make an appointment. Only at Stony Brook is there a gathering for children of this age group on Saturday afternoons.
