Gov. Cuomo unveils NY coronavirus vaccine plan, prioritization phases

Gov. Cuomo unveils NY coronavirus vaccine plan, prioritization phases”

"You need the answers to plan for what to do", Cuomo said.

Dozens of protesters filled a casket display outside a nursing home in Brooklyn with 6,500 copies of Gov. Andrew Cuomo's new book, in which he wrote on his leadership during the coronavirus pandemic. "That worked fine and frankly was our only option because we didn't have any more sophistication than that", he said.

-Cuomo says an independent clinical advisory task force will review every COVID vaccine that is authorized by the federal government and will advise the state on vaccines' effectiveness and safety.

Cuomo laid out the state's planned vaccine matrix during a coronavirus briefing he held Sunday at his Manhattan office.

Cuomo on Sunday said figuring out how to distribute the vaccine will be the state's greatest operational challenge of the COVID-19 crisis.

New details emerged Sunday on how health officials in NY could administer a future vaccine for COVID-19, with essential workers and high-risk individuals slated to receive the injection first, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said.

The general population would be last to receive the vaccine, according to the plan.

Since most of the potential vaccines would require two doses, NY would have to distribute close to 40 million total doses to its 19.5 million residents.

-Cuomo notes that there is talk of a vaccine as early as December, and notes that it's a massive undertaking that could be upon us in just a few weeks.

The plan also noted the state is building a network of facilities where vaccines can be administered, including hospitals, long-term care facilities, urgent care clinics and community centers, pharmacies, physician offices, schools, congregate facilities, mobile units and convention centers.

The New York City Sheriff's Department served the order.

"Beginning next month, Ski resorts will be allowed to reopen with limited indoor capacity, which will allow New Yorkers to have some outdoor activity this winter without having to quarantine when they come back".

Theatres will only open in counties that are below 2 per cent of Covid-19 test positivity rate on a 14-day average and have no cluster zones, Xinhua news agency quoted Cuomo as saying on Saturday.
