It’s been a slow go but 20% of kids 5-11 in New York have now had at least one dose of Pfizer’s COVID vaccine and 8% are now fully vaccinated. In three weeks, the number of kids who have gotten one shot has little more than doubled.
In the Capital Region more cases have been reported between November 1 and December 7 than the previous month. On average it’s two times more for 11 counties.
