City urges caution as ‘COVID classic’ and virus variants spread

Mayor Bill de Blasio spoke about vaccines, variants, and eligibility Wednesday morning on the day the state officially raised the age limit for receiving the COVID-19 vaccine to people aged 60 and above.

On March 17, medical providers with the exception of pharmacies will be able to vaccinate customers. The new eligibility rules also include city employees who interact with the public, like teachers, said de Blasio.
