Last month, when New York first began vaccinating residents for COVID-19, the city and state was criticized for moving too slowly in distributing its allocated doses. This month, however, just as those efforts were finally speeding up, officials are facing a different challenge – a shortage of doses, which forced the city to cancel thousands of New Yorkers’ vaccination appointments last week.

In this week’s episode of The Check In – City Limits’ weekly newsroom podcast – Managing Editor Jeanmarie Evelly talks with COVID-19 reporter Nicole Javorsky about the latest with New York’s vaccination program, how it could be impacted by President Joe Biden’s plan and the logistical challenges to reaching all of the city’s older residents who are currently eligible.
