NYC teens will soon get COVID-19 vaccine, de Blasio promises


Mayor Bill de Blasio marveled at the biggest vaccination effort in the history of New York City this Wednesday, as they enthusiastically await the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) decision to also make 12 to 15 year olds eligible for the shots today.

“I’m really happy the FDA has authorized Pfizer for 12,13, 14, and 15 year olds,” said de Blasio. “The ‘Zoomers’ are going to be eligible and we are now zooming into action! We have a full plan to reach young New Yorkers and get them vaccinated.”
