Governor Kathy Hochul received a new COVID-19 booster shot Wednesday while giving an update on infection status.
The Governor took the jab inside Harlem’s Boriken Neighborhood Health Center located at 2265 3rd Avenue. This new booster is specifically designed to combat the Omicron variant, which Hochul declared officially available to the public.
“The good news is we have a booster that has been approved by the FDA and the CDC and that gives us a new tool to fight the virus,” Governor Hochul said. “So, for the first time ever now. We have boosters that are approved for their target specific variants. We haven’t had that before.”
