Statement from HANYS President Bea Grause, RN, JD, on Vaccine Distribution and Implementation Task Force
I greatly appreciate the governor’s focus on our preparedness to distribute an approved COVID-19 vaccine. A COVID-19 vaccine’s ultimate usefulness is dependent on our collective ability to administer it effectively and efficiently. I look forward to participating on this task force with my colleagues. Together, we will develop a coordinated strategy to make sure we are ready to vaccinate the millions of New Yorkers who are so eager to be protected against this devastating virus.
