Staff members and residents at nursing homes statewide are starting to get vaccinated against COVID-19.
The initial doses of the Pfizer vaccine are going out today at Shaker Place Rehabilitation & Nursing Center in Colonie.
Albany County Executive Dan McCoy visited the site this morning and says the vaccine delivery was warmly received.
Each person who chooses to get vaccinated will receive two doses over a three week period.
It will likely be a few months before the vaccine is made available to all of the general public.
