Bowman & Schumer task Biden with expedient vax rollout for the northeast Bronx


Some recent, noticeably low vaccination rates for northeast Bronx have prompted Senator Chuck Schumer and Congressman Jamaal Bowman to recruit President Joe Biden into the borough’s battle against COVID-19.

The two local lawmakers penned a letter to Biden, citing some of those subpar statistics while too asking that “additional vaccines be urgently distributed” in the areas of Co-op City, Edenwald, and Wakefield.
