Gov. Hochul was in Buffalo Tuesday morning. She gave an update on coronavirus in the state.

She said more people need to be getting vaccinated, and when it comes to boosters, we need to start planning on how they will be distributed.

"I’m making $65 million available to the localities to help you set this up. So you can go into your communities. You figure it out," said Gov. Hochul. "You know your communities better than anybody. Tell me how to take it literally to people door-to-door, after churches, at senior centers, drive-thru. You know all the options. You've been there before. Boosters are just as important," said Hochul.
