The coronavirus vaccine is becoming more and more accessible in New York City.

Mayor de Blasio says there are now more than 30 coronavirus vaccination sites taking walk in appointments for those age 50 and over.

“Convenience has been one of the issues and the more convenient it gets the easier it will be for people to make that choice.”

More vaccine sites are coming online. Shots will be put in arms at the American Museum of National History starting Friday. Meanwhile, the mayor notes the seven day positivity rate has dropped to 4.91 percent
