New Yorkers over the age of 30 can start signing up to get the COVID-19 vaccine Tuesday.

Scheduling began at 8 a.m.

Last week, the governor expanded eligibility to New Yorkers over the age of 50.

Starting on April 6, all New Yorkers over the age of 16 will be eligible to make an appointment to receive the vaccine.

The governor’s announcement comes about a month before President Biden’s May 1st goal for universal vaccine eligibility.

Gov. Cuomo is urging New Yorkers to remain patient as they schedule their vaccine appointments.
