Hundreds Get COVID Vaccine At Clinic In Celoron

CELORON — A COVID-19 vaccination clinic was held Sunday in Celoron, with hundreds of doses administered by the Veterans Affairs office.

Among those to get a shot was 100-year-old veteran Joseph Brunacini at Herman Kent Post 777.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo said as of 1 p.m. Sunday, health care distribution sites have administered 89% of first doses so far delivered.

“New York is working to vaccinate the state’s residents as quickly and efficiently as possible, and it’s critical that we reach underserved communities that have paid the highest price for COVID-19,” Cuomo said. “Our widespread and expanding network of distribution sites is getting more and more shots in arms across the state, but we’re limited by the supply of available vaccines. The federal government has expanded vaccine supply, but there’s still a long way to go until we’re able to reach a large portion of the state’s population. In the meantime, it’s critical that New Yorkers continue to be cautious and practice the behaviors known to help keep us and our loved ones safe.”
