People with comorbidities who want to get the COVID-19 vaccine will be able to sign-up beginning on Sunday.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo said that local health departments will determine how and where appointments will be scheduled.
A doctor’s note will be required to validate the comorbidity, or medical information that shows evidence of one will be required.
Those options will be monitored by local health departments, according to Cuomo.
More information is expected on this topic later in the week.
