New York to send COVID-19 vaccines directly to colleges and universities

By: | April 13, 2021

New York will send COVID-19 vaccines straight to colleges and universities across the state in an effort to get students immunized before the end of the spring semester.

Gov. Cuomo announced during a press-free visit to Suffolk Community College, that SUNY schools will take the lead in the new initiative aimed at vaccinating college students on-campus.

“We will be giving direct allocations to schools, colleges, universities, so they can vaccinate their students in their facilities, and let’s stamp this beast to death while we can,” the governor said. “We have COVID on the run… But we need herd immunity, we need every New Yorker vaccinated, and that includes New York’s young people and students, and we’re going to make it a reality.”
