Pretty soon, all New Yorkers 16 years and older will be eligible to get the Covid-19 vaccine. But is the system ready to absorb the exponential surge in requests for appointments?
NY1’s Zack Fink, Juan Manuel Benítez and Courtney Gross discuss how the immunization rollout has been going so far and what can be done to make sure disadvantaged New Yorkers are not left out of the process.
They also comment on new reports that, in the summer of last year, Gov. Cuomo was seeking a $4 million deal for his book about his handling of the pandemic.
And they keep following the campaign trail, as the race for comptroller heats up with some powerful endorsements, and two Republican mayoral hopefuls square off in a contentious debate.
We want to hear from you, especially if you’ve had any issues booking a vaccine appointment.
