Gov. Kathy Hohcul received COVID-19 booster shot Monday morning. It's part of her efforts to promote widespread vaccinations.

She was eligible because she received the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine earlier this year.

Hochul got a Moderna booster at a public ribbon-cutting at the Decker College of Nursing and Health Sciences in Johnson City, near Binghamton. She says she didn't even feel a thing.

New York recommends a booster shot for people 65 and older or people with underlying health conditions that may make them more vulnerable to COVID-19. A booster dose is also recommended for people who work or live in high-risk settings.
