FL1 DAILY: Vaccine rollout needs to speed up if ‘normal’ is going to arrive by summer (podcast)

How is vaccine rollout going in New York State? This week we heard important updates from Governor Andrew Cuomo about the vaccination effort happening now in the state, but a lot of details are still missing. While the Cuomo Administration says that some of those are still being worked out — as the situation remains fluid — there have been real questions raised about the state’s ability to rollout the vaccine to an effective number of people by it’s self-imposed guidance. Governor Cuomo has said repeatedly that the state should hit critical mass by late-summer or early-fall at latest. However, Bill Hammond of the Empire Center says that projection could be significantly off after what we’ve seen play out in recent weeks since vaccine distribution began. Today is the second part of our conversation with Bill Hammond of the Empire Center.
