Northwell to Lead LI Covid-19 Vaccination Effort

Regional centers will administer the Covid-19 vaccination program, with Northwell Health taking the lead on Long Island.

Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo said Wednesday that Phase 2 of the program will begin early next year.

Cuomo also announced that the state has launched the Vaccinate New York campaign, which will provide free vaccinations to all New Yorkers.

 “We want to be the first COVID-free state and that means remaining diligent. It’s about logistics, and supply, and most importantly it’s about public education and access. Remember, we need to have 75 to 85 percent of the population vaccinated to actually win this war. That’s why we have not only launched the Vaccinate New York campaign and website to help instill public confidence in the vaccine, but we also have taken steps to ensure no New Yorker will have to pay a penny to get vaccinated. New Yorkers have already paid more than their fair share for COVID, but by staying united, tough and smart, we will reach the light at the end of the tunnel.”

The second phase of administrations will be focused on essential workers and individuals in the general public who are most at risk.
