Governor tells New York State pediatricians to get ready for vaccine rollout

Governor Kathy Hochul has said pediatricians need to prepare for the rollout of vaccines to their patients.

The FDA is set to discuss children ages 5-11 getting the vaccine Oct. 26.

With the large number of positive cases in children throughout the summer, Hochul looks forward to children getting the vaccine.

A Zoom call between Hochul and pediatricians will take place to discuss the rollout plans.
