New York City is playing catch up with coronavirus vaccinations following supply shipment delays.   

The city had to hold off on scheduling appointments because of weather related delays but it’s expected to quickly catch up.  Health Commissioner Dr. Dave Chokshi says right now there’s 170 thousand first doses a week coming to New York City.

“We expected that number will modestly increase through March and hopefully by the end of March to April, there will be a further increase in supply.”

And with that expected increase, Mayor de Blasio still feels confident in reaching the goal of getting five million New Yorkers fully vaccinated by June.
