Mount Sinai Vax Mobile heads to Baldwin, Malverne
The Mount Sinai South Nassau Vax Mobile was at Baldwin High School Monday to get more people vaccinated.
According to new government data, hospitalizations of COVID-19 patients aged 30-39 are hitting a record high. Doctors say the highly contagious delta variant is to blame.
Across the nation, less than half of individuals 25 to 39 are fully vaccinated, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Dr. Aaron Glat, the chair of Medicine and chief of Infectious Disease at Mount Sinai South Nassau Hospital, says they're seeing a younger population being hospitalized due to the virus. His message is to get vaccinated.
