Westchester Reopening COVID Vaccination Site To Combat 'Explosion' Of Cases, Latimer Says

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) -- Westchester County is reopening its mass vaccination site, as COVID cases continue to surge.

Starting Wednesday, the County Center will offer 250 shots a day for kids. Adults can also sign up for booster shots by appointment.

"We have had an explosion, a literal explosion, in the number of people that are infected," County Executive George Latimer said Tuesday. "We believe that encouraging people to get boosted is now the most important task of vaccination for adults."

The Westchester County Department of Health is running the vaccination and booster clinic.

Boosters for adults will be offered from 1 to 4 p.m. Wednesday and 1 to 6 p.m. Friday.

Pediatric shots will be available from 3 to 6:30 p.m. Thursday and 2:30 to 6 p.m. Friday.
