‘Vaccine Supercharge’: More doses, employees coming to NYC to boost vaccinations
New York City will get 1.65 million coronavirus vaccines a week, on average, from now until the end of April, according to Sen. Chuck Schumer under a new plan announced Friday.
The plan is touted as Vaccine Supercharge.
Throughout the city, 5,000 employees will be hired to administer the vaccine under the plan.
"There are going to be many more vaccines, many more sites, many more workers to administer the vaccine as a result of the legislation we passed,” said Sen. Chuck Schumer.
"You can fill Yankee Stadium with the additional number of people each day that will get the shot. Every day it is a Yankee Stadium filled,” said Sen. Schumer.
The plan aims to encourage every New Yorker to get vaccinated to stop the spread of the coronavirus.
