Experts say everyone who wants a vaccine will be able to get one by July.
That said, demand continues to outpace actual supply of vaccine in the Finger Lakes and New York in general.
“It’s been improving,” Dr. Michael Mendoza told 13WHAM. “From my standpoint, we can’t go fast enough.”
While pharmacies will continue focusing on vaccinating those who are 60 and older- other vaccination sites will vaccinate different groups of workers.
“The way we are right now is certain sites are limited to a certain demographic and certain types of vaccinators are limited to a certain demographic, and that kind of makes for a lot of confusing pathways for a lot of people,” Dr. Mendoza added. “So, if we can simplify it and make it all comers all eligible. That’s going to make it much more efficient for the public.”
In the Finger Lakes region, around 20% of the population has been vaccinated.
