The Governor received a Johnson & Johnson vaccine in March 2021, her first booster dose of the Moderna COVID-19 booster in October 2021, and her second booster dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 booster in April of 2022. “Vaccination is a critical public health tool to protect us against becoming seriously ill with COVID-19,” Governor Hochul said. “I urge every New Yorker to talk to their doctor about the new COVID-19 vaccine and call your local pharmacy to schedule an appointment. We have the tools to fight this virus – now, it’s up to us to use them.” The 2023-24 vaccine, previously authorized by the federal Food and Drug Administration, is expected to be available at pharmacies and physicians’ offices, as well as other health care providers, throughout New York State in the coming days.
