We understand that strict eligibility criteria, combined with limited supply, can be a frustrating experience to those waiting to be vaccinated – especially those who have a condition that may trigger more serious complications from COVID. At this time, New York state is directing exactly who is eligible for a vaccine, and we are bound by those directives. The state has indicated that in the future, it may provide guidance on how to prioritize vaccines based on medical conditions or other factors. However this may take a while, as the CDC has identified 23 conditions that are or may be linked to serious complications and much analysis must be done to develop a fair process that takes into account the type and severity of the disease, along with age. In the meantime, we will move forward with the process as outlined by the state that allows us to quickly fill vaccine slots as supply allows.
