(WBNG) -- Monday, Governor Andrew Cuomo announced that all New York residents are who are 50-years-old or older will be able to receive a COVID-19 vaccine.
This new measure begins at 8 a.m. on March 23.
Previously, only people who were 60-years-old or older, people with certain commodities and some essential workers were able to get the vaccine.
Cuomo said the state can expand eligibility because of promises from the federal government that vaccine supplies will keep increasing. It's unclear how many people are now eligible for vaccines in New York.
