Governor Hochul has announced yet another effort to get teenagers vaccinated against the coronavirus.
The governor said Tuesday that 120 new pop-up vaccination sites will be opening statewide over the next 12 weeks. The hope is to boost the immunization rate among people in the 12 to 17-year-old age group. So far, only 54 % of New Yorkers in that category have been vaccinated which is the lowest of any demographic that's currently eligible to get their shots. Hochul also says there are no plans to make the COVID-19 vaccine mandatory for students.
