"Schools are going to open in September. We really want our young people to have as normal a school experience as possible, and getting young people vaccinated 12 and over is incredibly important. It's available, it's free," said Nassau County Executive Laura Curran last week.
There is no appointment needed for the shots.
On Monday, Gov. Andrew Cuomo allocated $15 million to community groups to zero in on 117 ZIP codes that are lagging in vaccination rates. Twenty-one of those ZIP codes are on Long Island – that includes parts of Hempstead.
