Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Cuomo Expands Vaccine Eligibility to New Yorkers 50 Years and Up” – below is their description.

New Yorkers 50 years and older will be eligible for the Covid-19 vaccine beginning Tuesday, Governor Andrew Cuomo said.

The governor announced the expanded eligibility on Monday at Grace Baptist Church in Mount Vernon, just north of the Bronx, where a pop-up vaccination site will open. Since Jan. 15, more than 160 such sites have administered more than 62,000 first doses, according to Cuomo’s office.

New York joins more than a dozen other U.S. states expanding eligibility to help meet President Joe Biden’s May 1 deadline for all adults to be vaccinated. On March 10, Cuomo expanded eligibility to people 60 and over, or 12 million New Yorkers.

Cuomo got his Covid-19 vaccination on March 17 at a Baptist church in Harlem. All houses of worship in the state can serve as points of distribution for the vaccine starting in April, the governor said Monday.
