New Yorkers 60+ are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine starting Wednesday: Cuomo

The age limit for receiving the COVID-19 vaccine is being dropped in New York by five years, Governor Andrew Cuomo said Tuesday, with all New Yorkers 60 and older able to get their shot beginning Wednesday, March 10.

With eligibility cutting off New Yorkers who are under the age of 65, the new limitations put the 63-year-old governor himself in the age range allowed by dropping the requirement to 60, Cuomo announced at yet another closed-to-the-press event as he staves off calls for his resignation in light of sexual harassment allegations.
