Safe and effective COVID vaccination has begun, with each state responsible for establishing distribution standards. New Rochelle stands ready to follow the guidelines and direction of New York State health authorities and strongly encourages residents to get vaccinated as soon as they are eligible. Find the latest information on New York State's website.
Here are some of the basic facts:
- Two vaccines have been approved by the FDA under an Emergency Use Authorization and New York State’s independent Clinical Advisory Task Force: developed by Pfizer and BioNTech, and Moderna. Both require two doses a number of weeks apart.
- Because it is unclear about how long immunity after vaccination lasts, prevention practices like wearing a mask, washing hands regularly and social distancing will still be important.
- Vaccines are safe and will be offered free of charge.
