Albany County Executive Dan McCoy says vaccinations are crucial to getting back to normal.

The question now is how willing parents will be in allowing their young adolescents to get the vaccination.

It comes as Gov. Cuomo said Tuesday that he’s hoping to see Pfizer COVID shots in the arms of 12 to 15-year-olds as early as  Thursday. He called the approval an encouraging step in the ongoing battle against this global pandemic.

Public health officials are calling this a watershed moment in our nation's ability to fight back the pandemic.

Hear what McCoy would like to see done to improve vaccination rates, and his thoughts on if it should be mandatory for school by watching the video of Dan Levy’s story.
