New York cuts the eligible age for the COVID-19 vaccine to 30 years
Governor Andrew Cuomo said in a statement that New Yorkers aged 30 or over will be eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine starting March 30, and all residents aged 16 or over will be eligible as of April 6.
"Today we are taking a huge step in the battle to defeat Covid," Cuomo said on Monday in a statement.
Due to limited supply, the statement encouraged residents to be patient and advised them not to come to the vaccination sites without an appointment.
