State-run vaccinations sites set to downsize

Vaccine in hand

(WBNG) -- Governor Andrew Cuomo announced Friday afternoon that state-run vaccination sites will begin to downsize.

Governor Cuomo said the planned downscaling of the sites is due to the CDC reporting that 70% of adults in New York State have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.

Since, Cuomo has lifted a majority of virus restrictions in the state.

Cuomo said statewide progress on getting the vaccine has been "remarkable."

Sites that are closed will have their resources reallocated to places where vaccination rates are low.

The downsizing will begin June 21 with the closing of vaccination sites in Corning, Oneonta, Potsdam, and York College.

The process of closing sites will take months and will be based on demand, proximity to other sites, and other "locally focused efforts."

In the Southern Tier, the state operates a vaccination site at the former Gannett Printing Building at 10 Gannett Dr. in Johnson City.

That site opened in January 2021.
