“Getting vaccinated is the best action we can take to crush the pandemic, protect ourselves and our loved ones, and help us start to return to normal,”Rep. Paul Tonko, (D) NY, 20th District
According to Congressman Tonko, more than 90 percent of Americans live within five miles of a vaccine site. Public health officials urge every eligible person to get vaccinated as quickly as possible.
