New York City’s stock of about 92000 doses of vaccine will be used up on Thursday if it is not replenished according to the current new crown vaccination rate in New York City, New York City’s mayor Beth Howe said on the 19th.
New York City began the new crown vaccination in the middle of December last year.

During the period from January 10 to 16, New York City was vaccinated with about 220000 doses of vaccine, with a total of nearly 456000 doses. If the vaccine supply was sufficient, about 300000 doses could have been vaccinated this week, but the reality is that some hospitals are forced to cancel a certain number of vaccination appointments; without the help of the federal government, New York City will have to temporarily close some vaccination sites on Thursday. Bai Sihao said he was optimistic that the supply of vaccines is expected to increase significantly after President elect Biden takes office.

In addition to calling on the federal government to increase the supply of vaccines, Como has written to Pfizer on the 18th, hoping to buy more vaccines directly from the company.
