BK Borough Pres. Eric Adams lays out proposal to speed up vaccine rollout

NEW YORK — More than 340,000 doses of the COVID-19 vaccines have made their way to New York in the last three weeks. However, less than 90,000 New Yorkers have received their first dose.

Several local leaders, including Brooklyn Borough Pres. Eric Adams, have proposed plans to help expedite vaccinations in the city.

Adams criticized the current vaccination rollout, calling for a 24/7 operation.

“I don’t know why they believed it was a 9 to 5 operation,” he said, adding the city should speed the process up as we’re in the middle of a crisis.
