The coronavirus vaccine supply from the federal government is being cut to New York State.   

Governor Cuomo didn’t have a reason but says the 300-thousand weekly first doses arriving in New York will be down to 250-thousand for next week.With millions of New Yorkers now eligible there’s already a big backlog. 

 

“We are now scheduling appointments through the distribution mechanism 14 weeks in advance and most of the distributors are already fully booked.”

Meanwhile, Cuomo is pleased to see the coronavirus positivity rate steadily dropping the past week or so following a post holiday surge.It’s now just over 6 percent in the state.
