MOUNT VERNON, NY (WROC) — Gov. Kathy Hochul hosted a coronavirus briefing Tuesday afternoon to update New Yorkers on the state’s ongoing efforts to respond to a pandemic.
The governor announced the expansion of the SUNY/CUNY incentive for full scholarship vaccination for children aged 5-11 years. Children in that age group who have received the COVID-19 vaccine will be entered into a pool where 50 winners will later be selected.
This new incentive program – called “Vaccinate. Educate. Graduation.” — Building on the state’s previous “Get a Shot to Make Your Future” campaign for 12-18-year-olds who have been vaccinated.
On Monday, the governor reported 30 new COVID-19 deaths in New York, adding that 58,145 doses of vaccine were administered in the 24 hours leading up to the state.
“I am proud of the New Yorkers for all the progress we have made in fighting this pandemic,” Governor Hochul said. “Every day we are getting closer to beating COVID-19, but we cannot get complacent. This vaccine is our best weapon and now children can also be vaccinated. We should all be ambassadors for this vaccine and tell our loved ones to get vaccinated as soon as possible.”
