Covid-19 Roundup: Avoiding Vaccine Scams, Rite-Aid Q&A

      • Rite Aid has put together a useful series of questions and answers about the vaccine. Included are questions about pregnancy and the vaccine, overlap with other vaccinations, how the vaccines work and many other topics.
      • New York State is warning residents about possible Covid-19 vaccination fraud. It has set up a hotline to report suspected fraud, including any attempts to promise to set up a vaccination appointment in exchange for payment. To make a report, call 1-833-VAX-SCAM (1-833-829-7226) or email [email protected]
      • Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo said Tuesday that New York’s State parks, historic sites, campgrounds, and trails welcomed a record-setting 78 million visits in 2020. The milestone marks nine years of steady visitor growth and represents an overall increase of 34 percent, or more than 20 million visitors since the governor took office in 2011.The increase was driven by unprecedented visitation in the spring and fall, as New Yorkers turned to nearby state parks, trails and historic sites to escape the pandemic. Visitation during the summer, typically the busiest time in the park system, was reduced as state park beaches, pools, historic sites and trailheads operated with reduced capacity limits. Attendance at some of the park system’s destinations was also impacted by limits on out-of-state and international visitors; cancellation of large concerts, festivals and events; and public messages urging people to re-create locally.
