The Finger Lakes and Central New York are doing well with vaccinations.
That’s the message from the state, who is updating totals on a daily basis.
The Central New York region has vaccinated more than 314,000 people as of Tuesday. The Finger Lakes has vaccinated more than 372,000.
“We know the key to defeating COVID once and for all is getting every single New Yorker vaccinated, and as our supply increases week to week we are opening up eligibility even further to all New Yorkers over the age of 30, with universal eligibility set to begin on April 6,” Governor Cuomo said. “Nearly one out of every three New Yorkers has already received at least one dose of the vaccine, and we are getting more shots in arms every single day while continuing to focus on fair and equitable distribution. The light at the end of the tunnel is getting closer, but for now we have to remain New York tough and continue with the practices we know will stop the spread.”
The state recently expanded eligibility to those who are 30 and older. Those who are 16 and older will become eligible on April 6.
