SOMOS, Cuomo team up to boost COVID-19 vaccine delivery in communities of color

In yet another closed-to-the-press public event, Governor Andrew Cuomo announced Friday another program aimed at expanding COVID-19 vaccine access to communities of color.

The nonprofit SOMOS will be using its network of more than 2,500 medical professionals, including doctors and pharmacists, to deliver a million vaccine doses to the Black and Latino communities they serve. Additional pop-up vaccination sites — including the New Settlement Community Center in the Bronx, where Cuomo held the March 26 gathering — will also be established.
