Anyone 30 and older is now able to make an appointment for a COVID-19 vaccine.
Doctors say the decision to expand is important for two reasons.
"One is the lack of mitigation that's being eased up in many locations including New York. And the variants that are dramatically increasing in the New York area," says Dr. Bruce Farber, the chief of infectious diseases at Northwell Health.
According to New York state, more than 9 million doses have been administered so far. 
Eligibility is set to expand again next Tuesday, April 6, when anyone 16 and older can schedule an appointment for a shot.
