“On Monday, you can start to schedule appointments. Pharmacies will start coming online, some on Monday, more on Wednesday,” said Cuomo.
Still he held firm to his former belief stating, “Caution, caution, caution, because the supply is a major problem, You’ll wind up having 3,000 distribution points in a couple of weeks, but none of them will have nearly enough vaccine.”
