The state is sending COVID-19 vaccines directly to colleges and universities across the state, including those in the Bronx, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Monday.

“The 18-to-24 population is a population that is growing in positivity,” Cuomo said during a closed press briefing on Long Island. “We have them in schools; let’s use the schools as the base for the vaccine. Makes all the sense in the world. We have the staff at the school, we have the students at this school. Let’s vaccinate them at the schools.”

“We will be giving direct allocations to schools, colleges, universities, so they can vaccinate their students in their facilities,” Cuomo added. “Let’s stamp this beast to death while we can.”

Last week, all New Yorkers age 16 and above became eligible to receive the coronavirus vaccine under state rules.
