Governor Andrew Cuomo announced Monday that New York state will distribute COVID-19 vaccines directly to state and New York City public colleges and universities with the aim of vaccinating as many college students as possible before the end of the spring semester. 

Cuomo says the state will ship vaccines directly to SUNY and CUNY campuses.

“We will be giving direct allocations to schools, colleges, universities, so they can vaccinate their students in their facilities,” Cuomo said. “Let’s stamp this beast to death while we can.”

As of April 6, any New Yorker 16 years and older is eligible for the vaccine. Cuomo says private colleges will also be allowed to participate in the vaccination effort.
