The wait is over for families looking to get their young children vaccinated against COVID-19.
Starting Tuesday, privately run vaccination sites across the city began administering COVID-19 doses to children as young as 6 months old.
In the Bronx, at the Montefiore Comprehensive Family Care Center, NY1 reporter Amy Yensi spotted families lining up early to be among the first to protect their children against the virus.
One mother Yensi spoke with said it’s been a moment both she and her child had been waiting for for quite some time.
“He’s so happy. He’s been waiting for two years to be vaccinated,” Anna Weiser said while holding her newly vaccinated youngster.
