At least 8,700 vaccinated people have tested positive for COVID-19, according to department spokesperson Abigail Barker.
A tiny fraction of vaccinated New Yorkers have tested positive for COVID-19 as infections and hospitalizations rise, the state Department of Health told The Associated Press Tuesday.
That’s out of the nearly 11 million New York residents who are fully vaccinated.
NPR reports that: COVID-19 cases are particularly surging in areas of low vaccination. More than 97% of people entering hospitals right now are unvaccinated.
The vaccines save lives.
