New York's first woman governor, Kathy Hochul, spoke on the importance of getting vaccinated,
"The COVID-19 vaccine is readily available, free, and most importantly, it's effective - now, for those eligible, it is also important to get booster shots to ensure your vaccine is as efficient as possible. A year ago, we were not lucky enough to have a vaccine at our disposal, but now we have multiple. The vaccine is the best tool we have to work our way out of this pandemic and I encourage those who have not yet received theirs to go out and get it to protect yourself and your loved ones."
As of data released by the Governor's Office yesterday, October 25, 2021, 45,217 doses of vaccine were administered around the state within the last 24 hours leading up to Monday.
