NYS Opens Portal for 1B Vaccine Distribution

This message was sent January 11 through the NewRoAlert messaging system. Sign up today to receive notifications by phone, email and/or text.

 

Effective today, New York State has authorized the COVID vaccine for all educators and first responders, and for all people over the age of 75.  If you are eligible, please register and schedule your vaccine through the State website at ny.gov/vaccine.

 

The vaccination process will take many weeks, so while you can and should sign up immediately, please understand that your scheduled date to receive the vaccine might still be a ways off.

 

The COVID vaccine is safe and effective.  It’s been studied rigorously by scientific and medical experts, and has already been safely administered to millions of people.  Vaccination is the only way for our community and nation to overcome the COVID crisis and recover fully.  If you’re eligible, please get your vaccine.

 

In the meantime, with nearly 900 active cases of COVID in New Rochelle, we all need to continue acting responsibly: wear a mask, keep your distance, wash your hands, and avoid large crowds.  

 

There is light at the end of the tunnel, but we’re not there yet, and each of us must do the right thing to get to the other side.

 

Again, visit the State website at ny.gov/vaccine for vaccine information, and you can always visit newrochelleny.com/coronavirus for comprehensive local resources.
