"Vaccinating our children - and ensuring they stay up-to-date with all recommended vaccine doses - means they will have the best protection possible against COVID-19," Governor Hochul said. "That's why the best pediatricians across our nation and within our state recommend children five and older get vaccinated as soon as possible. Together with partners in communities on-the-ground, our #VaxforKids sites make getting vaccinated accessible and convenient for New York parents, guardians and families."
