New Yorkers 50 and Older Can Get Vaccinated Starting Tomorrow
For a while, I thought I was going to have to play the fat card to get my Covid-19 Vaccine. You know, play up my morbid comorbidities cause I'm fat to get a note from my doctor and then get my shot. Not anymore.
Governor Cuomo just announced that now all individuals over the age of 50 are now eligible to get their Covid-19 vaccination starting tomorrow, March 23rd. The governor made the announcement Monday morning at Grace Baptist Church in Mount Vernon. People who are 50 years old or older can sign up starting at 8 a.m. Tuesday.
It's confusing to know if and when you're eligible for your vaccine. Heck, it's difficult to even figure out where to go to get your shot.
For all the details on eligibility, locations, and what you need to know about getting your Covid-19 vaccination, including potential side effects of the vaccine you can find more information at www.https://covid19vaccine.health.ny.gov
One question that I've seen a lot online is after your fully vaccinated do you still have to wear a mask in public? According to the CDC, the short answer is, "yes". Apparently, even with the vaccination, a person can still carry the virus in their nasal passages that can be spread through sneezing. So the person who is vaccinated won't get sick, but they could still spread the virus to someone else. In addition, there are several variants to Covid-19 and the CDC isn't sure if the vaccine will fully protect someone from them.
